Ellis Parkinson [b.1999] is a London based practitioner. Ellis previously attended Camberwell College of Arts  and The Slade School of Fine Art , graduating as one of the most decorated students in the schools' considerable history. His work is held in University College London's Special Collection.
Ellis' interdisciplinary, research-based practice utilises photography, text and sculptural installation, incorporating multiple layers of critical and political subtext.
Often quoting the forms and aesthetics of conceptual art, his work employs reverie, satire and surrealism as well as evocations of classic literature and cinema. Ellis invites audiences to challenge themselves to examine historical and intellectual legacies and showcase how contextualising them in new settings can provide space for considering intersectional thought and voices, especially in environments in which these voices would previously have been denied. Ellis aims to test himself within these environments by finding the limits of the institutions he is himself a part of, evaluating functionality and methodologies, translating his lived experience onto prospective audiences.
Ellis has been able to study at the RCA with the support of the pre-eminent abstract expressionist, Frank Bowling OBE RA.
