Leanna Loves Local: Jeff Ellis
The Painter: Jeff Ellis
There is so much hidden talent in the great city of Portland, Oregon and we like to think we’ve found it.
Jeff Ellis is a native to this great city and is making a name for himself. The inspirations behind his work stems from the life he lives. He told us that music plays a huge role in each piece he creates, whether it be hip hop, classical, folk or french music. The mood that is emitted from these given genres defines the final product. He is a constant explorer and traveler which brings new ideas to fruition; especially simple trips to the nearest museums. He is constantly inspired and shaped by artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Dali. Jeff left us with a colorfully filled shop and lasting words: “With new situations comes new feelings, and these new feelings are directly applied to my work. Bold, precise, and loud colors are always a must!”
Jeff’s paintings will be displayed through the month of May. Support local and come take a peek at his gallery at Leanna NYC!
