Eli Rosenblatt

Eli with paintings

Eli lives in Shorewood WI with his wife Pauline, sons Isaiah and Jeremiah and daughters Jasmine and Leila.

He travels frequently to China, Nepal, Mongolia, and Tibet and opened ARTASIA in Milwaukee's Third Ward as his finds went from filling suitcases to 40 foot shipping containers. He also arranges for custom work to be done by the artisans he deals with regularly.

Milwaukee Magazine, January 2003.

These 50 people are the stuff that conversations are made of -- and the conversationalists. They are the masters of singular unusual talents or the jugglers of a menagerie of seemingly opposite arts. They have memorable quirky personalities or oddly normal ones for the breadth of their pursuits. In short, they are people you should know...

When he was in his 20s, Eli Rosenblatt lived in China and Taiwan, taught himself the language and learned the culture. It paid off -- he married a Chinese woman from Taiwan. Now 38, Rosenblatt goes four times a year to traipse around remote areas of Tibet, China, Nepal and Mongolia, shopping for unusual art and antiques to sell at his Third Ward shop ARTAASIA (and online to buyers all over the world.) Rosenblatt is also an artist (a creator of big, powerful canvases) and the father of two.
