Ballin’ & shot callin’
The 3rd youngest of nine children, Elliot Francis Stewart was born in 1982 and lived his early years around Pakuranga in East Auckland. A day dreamer as a child he spent most of his time drawing old sailing ships and reading comic books - influences still seen in his work today. His family relocated to Grey Lynn in 1996 this was the start of his graffiti career - gaining recognition under the name Deus. Immersing himself in inner city life, a stark contrast to the pace and vibe of the eastern suburbs, he quickly made Surrey Crescent, Grey Lynn Park and K'Rd his everyday stomping grounds. Elliot is a founding member of RFC crew with Sens, Gasp, Vino and PMT and a key member of the world renown TMD crew.
Elliot works and lives in Auckland, New Zealand and has painted throughout New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, France, England and the US.
