2020 FEATURED ARTIST – Ellie Ali

Painting
Lisbon, Portugal

Fountain Walk – Booth 117

“Born and raised in New York City, self taught artist ELLIE ALI’s paintings were first inspired by the jazz and literary worlds of the nineteen fifties and sixties, and then by her traveling and painting in North Africa, Europe and India. She has exhibited widely and is a prolific and serious painter. She currently lives in New York City.

Her medium is an unusual use of acrylics, Chinese ink, wax and oil paints on paper. Paper has always been her co-conspirator; always surprising in its versatility. Ellie Ali is a self taught artist.

The human figure is a constant in ALI’s work. They speak to her. She listens.

ELLIE ALI’s paintings are collected internationally.”
