Eltono was born in Paris, but lived in Madrid throughout the 2000s, before moving to Beijing in 2010. The book, titled Line and Surface, gives an overview of his work from the last 12 years. As well as his public art, Elonto’s work has featured in exhibitions at galleries including Tate Modern in London and Fundacion Miró in Barcelona.

Featuring design by Jeroen van Mourik and texts by Javier Abarca and Rafael Schacter, Line and Surface is published in a limited edition of 1,000. Here are some spreads from the book, showing Eltono’s work in situ:

The book also features work Eltono has made for exhibitions, as well as public sculptures, such as those shown below:
