Elton Darlo was born in and raised in Gorton, East Manchester and raised in Longsight.
A 72 year old prolific outsider artist, never formally trained, he came from the school of hard knocks.
Having experienced both homelessness and mental health issues, his biro sketches often empathise with the underdog in the sprawl of human traffic. Elton's art is his therapy, his salvation. A percentage of profits from the sale of Elton's work is donated to charity.
