Maggie Ellis

New York-based artist Maggie Ellis (b. 1991, Atlanta, Georgia) is a painter of surreal memories, laughter and life. Her work is born of the fleeting, humorous moments of voyeurism she witnesses throughout New York City and informed by her upbringing in the rural South. A rebellion against tradition and expectation, Ellis weaves the uncanny and taboo through the mundanity of daily life. She received her BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014, and her MFA from Hunter College in 2017. In the same year, she also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Recent exhibitions include: Through a Glass Darkly, Carl Kostyal, Milan, and Strange Strangers at Charles Moffett, New York.
