Shreds: Pop Culture Paintings by Steve Ellis

Published Oct 21, 2022

American multimedia artist Steve Ellis creates oil paintings that subvert pop culture iconography to explore topics in the realm of consumerism, false idols and the death of print media. From his website:

“Ellis has taken American flotsam such as crashed cars, cigarette lighters, and broken high heels shoes, and elevated them to high art.”

“His long list of exhibitions in galleries starts with a 2001 showing of lighters in Colin De Land’s American Fine Arts in New York.

Besides gallery walls, Ellis’ work has been commissioned by Zoo York skateboards, for the credit sequence for the film The Others, album covers for the band Luna, and most recently for the hit show At Home with Amy Sedaris. Besides paying tribute to pop culture, his work Is pop culture.”
