The Artist: Ellen Porteus (Melbourne, Australia)
In her words, Melbourne based artist Ellen Porteus "Brings vibrant worlds to life through animation, illustration, and installment." Yet, to say that Ellen's work is merely "vibrant" would be an understatement. The colors in her designs buzz with the energy of a 50 foot neon sign, as if transported from some psychedelic planet made entirely of lava lamps. But she doesn't stop there - Ellen also imbues her subject matter with a gleeful, tongue-in-cheek wit. It will have you cracking a wry smile as her dream-like color palette, digitally created characters, and techno-whimsical patterns present unique perspectives on gender identity, modern technology, and more. Her work refuses to let you look away, or to take yourself too seriously. Unsurprisingly, her work is in high demand across the globe, having been featured by brands like Nike, Facebook, Apple, and the New York Times.
