Ellex Swavoni is a multi-disciplinary, contemporary artist hailing from Louisville, Ky. As a child, she became enchanted by art toy design and the onslaught of information the internet brought. Throughout her formative years, she taught herself the art of sculpting, mold making, and other home manufacturing techniques.
She uses her love for toy design, sculpting, ancient spirituality, and graphic design, to create sobering works that speak on her view of the world around her. She captures and translates her experiences into future ancient symbols, music, and minimal abstract works.
Her philosophy: It is the responsibility of artists to translate the human experience into things that the senses can accept even if the mind can’t comprehend. This viewpoint informs her spiritual imagery and Future Ancient style. The Future Ancient style utilizes the visual language from religions across the diaspora to project modern ideologies into the realm of divinity.
She is currently based in Atlanta, where she is developing a series that proposes the importance of self-bonding and mental health. She will continue to cross-reference the modern ideas and techniques with ancient symbology in her new works, as well as advancing her Fine Art and Industrial Design education.
