Lee Ellis The Table Is Riddled With
A project that I wanted to work on purely for my own enjoyment. Creating a new series of works paying homage to two major influences on my creative life – Francis Bacon and comics. Here I merge the two worlds to create fun works.
Lee Ellis is a British multi-media artist based in Bristol. His insatiable desire to create brings him to embrace different artistic mediums, from printmaking to drawing and painting. The artist has an expressive and bold style, immediately striking with his unusual juxtaposition of bright colours and dark subjects. Lee’s paintings in particular convey emotional and visceral angst within his figures. From humans to animals, the artist never fails to depict the inner turmoil of his characters. He achieves this effect by employing heavy, raw and expressive brushstrokes that make his painting style poignant and immediately affecting.
