CUSP Magazine: Winter Issue 2014

Cusp2013

CUSP Magazine is a Chicago based publication focused on helping up and coming creatives gain exposure for their brand and products. Our company is a collective of highly motivated individuals who work together to bring a new voice to the creative community.

Then in April of 2014, Elee opened elee.mosynary gallery. The

gallery is located on 645 W 18th St. in Pilsen, and is so much more than

just another gallery. The name “Mosynary”, which means “charity”

or “to give”, explains what is happening within the spot. The location

merges art, photo/video work, a music studio, and acts as a meeting

ground and a creative space for those who are aspiring to express

themselves in a peaceful atmosphere. The gallery has thrown over 25

events ranging from art exhibits such as Still Sane, to music events like

Alive and Well, and panel discussions.

With the lack of a solid location for the urban creative community

to work on their projects and ideas, Elee’s gallery serves as a collaborative

location for creative people to get together and work on projects or

show the world their art. The gallery stands as a refreshing addition

to the Pilsen Art Walk on Second Friday’s every month. The energy

that the gallery has built, along with it’s diverse events is something that

chicago has needed for a while.

Elee sees himself as a leader in the art community as well as the

city itself. He has plans that include helping the fashion and hip-hop

communities, opening a vegan cafe, and organizing various programs

designed to help Chicago youth realize and accomplish their goals

through art and creativity. With all these goals, look to see Elee X as a

name associated with Chicago’s Creative Community for a long time

to come.
