ÔKiss With A FistÕ is a Mixed Media Original on un-stretched Canvas by contemporary artist Lee Ellis. The piece is signed by the artist.

Contemporary artist Lee Ellis draws together the figurative with the abstract, to create textural paintings, brimming with expressive character. Often dark in tone and mood, EllisÕ style is reminiscent of the tortured works of Francis Bacon, shot through with an abstract expressionist quality, that makes for a powerful, contemporary aesthetic.

Against a crimson background stands a man, dressing a blue, floral emblazoned sweater. Yet, above his gentle attire, Ellis has created a shocking visage, bloodied and bruised in livid shades of black, red, and pink: the kiss with the fist. Dark, innovative and absolutely hypnotic, this really is contemporary fine art at the top of its game.

About The Artist - Lee Ellis

Lee Ellis graduated from the University of the West of England, where he studied Graphic Design in 2006. Despite working in the Graphic Design industry he found his artistic expression grew into portrait painting, developing, over the years, a personal and distinctive style.

His insatiable desire to create brings him to embrace different artistic mediums, from printmaking to drawing and painting. With an expressive and bold style, immediately striking with his unusual juxtaposition of bright colours and dark subjects, Lee’s paintings in particular convey an emotional and visceral angst within his figures. From humans to animals, he never fails to depict the inner turmoil of his characters. He achieves this effect by employing heavy, raw and expressive brushstrokes that make his painting style poignant and immediately affecting.

Lee currently works and lives in Bristol, UK.
