We had the good fortune of connecting with Elijah Taylor and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elijah, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
My main inspiration is life itself, Everything from movies , religion, architecture etc. inspires me to create some of my best art.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets Rue Bleak apart from others is the story of all the pieces which make them unique from other brands as we tell stories with each individual piece.Some things that i’m really excited about are coming later this year as i’ve been working extremely hard to perfect these pieces for the customers to enjoy. I had to overcome many challenges to get where i am today but i always keeps myself on the vision of where i’m heading and the bigger purpose of all of this.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Would definitely have to take them Downtown and to Easton, The atmosphere down there is great at night and even in the daytime it will always be a vibe to go there and grab a bite at the yard whilst enjoying fun atmosphere and watching whatever is on the big screen Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to shout out my good friend fearofbryce for helping me be the best creative and version of myself as well my longtime friend Adrian for always giving his genuine and honest output on whatever i do .Huge thanks to my photographer Christian Gomez (papusxplicit) for always capturing my vison, and of course to my parents for always supporting me and having my back.
