Quezon City born and raised, Ella Elenzano-Orencillo is a multi-disciplinary Filipina artist currently based in Dubai which she considers her second home.
Her professional artistic beginnings were as an Airbrush Artist for AirArt Asia during the late 1990s until early 2000s, working mainly on customized shirts as well as car and wall murals. One of few women who had been a professional Airbrush Artist at the time, she was featured in several local TV shows and was invited to be a guest speaker at the College of Home Economics in University of the Philippines, Diliman.
A self-taught painter, she continues to explore different mediums. Her notable works include the customised MEGA by Foo-Dog vinyl toy as featured on TimeOut Dubai and the Olympic Mural for the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi.
Ella has been commissioned by brands such as Clinique Middle East, Level Shoe District, Eastpak Middle East, Swatch, Liu-Jo Kuwait, Fendi, Heineken, Swatch Middle East, Doner Deli, Puma, Sephora to name a few.
Her work has also been featured in several magazines. As Illustrado Magazine describes Ella and her art, “Ella Orencillo has certainly become ‘one of the boys’ in the male-dominated urban art scene in Dubai. Often gracing the hippest art events in the city, her cheeky and mostly pop-surrealist works speak of dreams, feminism, love and chaos and everything inbetween.”
