First inspiration from art, artist got from Rembrandt van Rijn works in childhood. It was a moment, when the artist first time in his life realized it consciously. As home was full with art books, parents were worked in cinematography, art surrounded him and Elmar grew up in an artistic environment.
Have graduated the Latvian Art Academy with Master’s degree in Art History and Restoration. Since that period artist professional worked in restoration of art objects. He participated in various projects of restoration of important culture objects in Latvia, Germany, Italy, UK.
Background in academic painting have provided a good base for his art, firmly grounded in the realism traditions. Has turned to social themes, such as culture, religion, traditions and humanity. Through his art, Elmar strives to convey the diversity of people and cultures, to show things that people have in common, as human beings inhabiting one planet.
Main technique is oil painting.
"I think, that main mission of art is to serve to humanity. Educate and inspire for harmonic life with people and with our planet."/ Elmar Magerram
