‘I Think He Might Be Dead’ is an original painting by contemporary artist Lee Ellis. Hand painted onto canvas, the piece is signed by the artist.

Contemporary artist Lee Ellis is a master of merging styles: drawing together the figurative with the abstract, Ellis’s paintings are bold, bright, and brimming with expressive character. With all the vibrancy of an early Impressionist painting ‘I Think He Might Be Dead’ depicts the majestic skull of a buffalo, its black horns creating a beautiful curvature within the square frame. It’s a piece that foregrounds texture and motion, building up layers of dynamism at every brush stroke, in order to render the subject both vital and tangible. Ellis has set his stag head against a background of roughly daubed sky-blue and sunshine-yellow, adding flecks of pigment to the creature’s cranium to create a compelling sense of dynamism and immediacy.


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.
