Lot 55 - Lee Eelus - Wherever I Go, There I am
Flashe & acrylic on arches aquarelle on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for War Child UK
Combining seemingly disparate elements from a wide range of found imagery, Eelus's strange and colourful visual language is an insight into his neurodivergent thinking. His studio practice becoming a form of therapy as he searches for a sense of balance through his use of colour and composition that he applies to prints, paintings, murals and 3D work.
He's painted and exhibited worldwide alongside key figures within the urban contemporary movement, the desirability of his work evident in the success of his solo exhibitions and sell-out print editions.
He currently lives in Brighton, UK.
Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Two cowboys battle it out in a fight between figurative and abstract as interlocking shapes of bold colour snake around the postcard.
A playful allegory about me getting in my own way, the constant battles I have with myself and the multiple sides to my personality that find it hard to co-exist.
