Ellis G’s first NY solo show at the Collective Hardware gallery was tonight. Entitled “Ocular Echoism – The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher” and presented by the De L’Autonomy Mission. 

“…Ocular is visual and my work is a visual echo. You have a bike, or handrail, or ladder, with some light on it and there’s a shadow that I enhance with chalk. It’s a visual echo. An ocular echo. I came up with it in 2006.”

Ellis G is a New York native rooted in graffiti street art. His graffiti can be found on the streets of New York, Europe and Asia. He has been featured on the covers and pages of The New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Mass Appeal, The Village Voice, Area Revue France, Der Spiegel Germany, H Magazine Spain, and countless others. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
