Kosso Eloul and his family emmigrated to Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1924. He began his studies in 1938 under Israeli sculptor Yitzhak Danziger. One year later, he moved to the United States to study at both the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago School of Design (1939-1943) where his instructors included Frank Lloyd Wright and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Eloul served in the US navy during WW2 and served as a medic in the Palestine War before returning to his artistic practice in 1948. The artist developed his signature style of balanced geometrical shapes through the 1960s. He met fellow artist Rita Letendre in 1962 and they were married two years later. After living in Los Angeles for several years, they settled permanently in Toronto in 1969. In that year, Eloul was Artist-in-Residence at the University of Toronto School of Architecture. His works may be found in public settings in many Canadian cities.
