Surge Protection and Other Works by Steve Ellis

Published May 2, 2013

Steve Ellis is an artist working in New York City’s Lower East Side. His representational technique uses pop culture iconography to explore various issues including contemporary consumerism.

His latest exhibition “Surge Protection” will be on show from May 2 – 31st at gallery nine5 in New York. The exhibit is presented by the gallery in collaboration with the New Museum Ideas City Festival.

“Surge Protection transforms the gallery into a space for reflection on the future of cities. The New Museum Ideas City Festival focuses on the role of culture in transforming city planning and improving urban landscapes. Ellis builds on this theme of untapped artistic capital by sounding a warning call. The artist applies his Pop Realism style to underscore the profound impact of natural elements on infrastructure built long ago, and offers imaginative solutions to the issues that the global community faces. The works illustrate the ability of artists to incite reactions and facilitate dialogue by presenting powerful images.”
