The limited print 'Elian' is part of the illustration series 'Quarantine Characters'. A series about some very different personalities Lieke Milder was in lockdown with in a hostel in Cusco, Peru, during the COVID-19 crisis. Each person is pictured in their most iconic way of coping with the strange situation they were suddenly in.
"Whomever thinks people are small in South-America is wrong. This is Elian, he is Venezuelan and the tallest person I've every met. As a brother of Praxy's girlfriend he temporarily helped out in the hostel. Every morning we woke up with cheerful whistling of Elian cleaning the bathroom. Although he knew I couldn't really understand his Spanish dialect, it didn't stop him from telling me stories about his home country or letting me meet his wife through Skype. Because of his length I found him a lot in this position, bending over to wipe off the hardest spots in the corners."
