About lee ellis
Lee Ellis is a British artist who paints expressive portraits and still lives. His bold, textured works bring psychology and emotion to the fore, giving voice to the hidden secrets of his subjects. Lee’s paintings are full of tortured distortions that capture the emotional angst of his figures - and we love the heavy brushstrokes and thick application of paint that the artist uses to achieve that effect.Lee studied Graphic Design at Bristol’s University of the West of England. Dissatisfied with the world of design, the artist began to experiment with abstract painting. Over the years he has honed his craft, developing a distinct and powerful style.
