Go Crack A Art


About Elias Klingen

Elias Klingen is 28 years old and from Stockholm, Sweden. Elias explains how, being digital art his biggest passion in life, he will dedicate most of his time to learning new software and techniques. 

Elias’s work has a strong composition and a sharp eye for details due to his curious attitude to focus on new skills.

After working for the Stockholm-based production company Rebels Studios and an internship at SNASK, Klingen is now a full-time freelance artist whose clients involve IKEA, Samsung, Absolut Vodka, and Volvo, to mention a few. His digital ability to manipulate real-life objects also made his artworks fit in photorealism.

Style and Technique

Rich in detail and full of dramatic lights, Elias’s artworks have commercial and glossy appeal. Additionally, Klingen says:” I get a huge adrenalin rush when I’m creating something that I’m proud of. Simple as that. My life concentrates on my passion for 3D and illustration. Indeed It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up.”

Largely inspired by Adolf Lachman and Manvsmachine’s works, Klingen is also currently using Cinema 4D, x-particles, HDRI-Light studio, Octane renders, and Photoshop in constant update with new digital art techniques.


His works show Klingen’s extraordinary ability to use digital art techniques. To make this furthermore enjoyable, we’ve selected the most recent ones.
