The Tacoma Files: Eli Hansen

DANIEL BLUE: MEET ELI HANSEN >>>

Tacomafileselihansen Tacomafilesart Eli Hansen is a roper.  Newly famous in cities such as Orlando and Seattle, his collaborative work with his brother Oscar was recently shown at the Seattle Art Museum. Initially inspired by glass blowing, Eli's work has grown to encompass metal sculpture and domestic artifice.

Everyone seems to want what this man has, and that my friends is pure Hansen magic.  Like the band of the same name, young women coo and flock to adore our gruff south Tacoma-based artist, but few find him to be the man they imagined. 

Uncle Eli, as I was introduced to him as a DJ at The Monsoon Room a few years ago, is a scoundrel.  Wild piercing eyes slay your heart from behind his mane of primal huntsman hair.   

"YEAHAW!" he screams as he rides away from the grocery with a child buggy full of "rescued" vegetables.   

"HOOT! WHOOT!" he proclaims, beer held high above his head as a muscular dog violently bites clean through branches it has just ripped from the tree in his front yard.   

Intelligent as a badger, Eli is sure to become a legend in this town.
