“Romela Elenzano Orencillo or Ella to her friends says she is “just an extraordinary “Plain Jane” with highfalutin dreams.” The young lady who longs to pour all her thought into images and create her own fantasy word, is an airbrush artist, illustrator, muralist and decorative painter. Ella describes her work as pop-surrealism to semi-realism that is highly influenced by dreams, feminism, love, chaos and everything in between.
She started as an airbrush artist trainee for Airart Asia in 1999 while on her second year in the university studying Psychology. She move to the Emirates in 2008 to work for a now defunct company that specializes in murals and decorative painting.
Ella pursued her love affair with drawing and illustration actively again in 2010, joining the largest artistic collaboration and custom toys exhibition in the Middle East – Project:MEGA, her first opportunity to join an exhibit in the UAE. She then won first place in a category for KidRobot’s annual MunnyMunth’s competition and also joined a group exhibition, the Proyecto Baetulona in Badalona, Spain. In the first quarter of 2011 alone, Ella’s works were exhibited at the 3Keez Illustration Exhibition at the American University of Dubai, at the Sneaker Summit and Worlds Together events. She also created an artwork for the New York Fashion Week, as well as a displayed piece in Tempe, Arizona.”
