Ellie Niblock is a mixed media artist from Belfast, Northern Ireland who has a love for colour, texture and obscurities. She has a playful imagination when it comes to creating work, using different materials to create anomalous forms that are decorative and almost dreamlike. Ellie makes sculptures, installations and video through the use of materials such as liquid plastic, foam and clay which gives her the slimy, soft, rough surfaces that you see in her work. Each object she creates is completely unique with it’s own attributes. Her creations do not represent a form that exists in the real world, but in a world that she has created herself. A paradise world that is abstract, whimsical and surreal, a world that you may dream about.
Ellie completed a BA Hons in Textile Art, Design and Fashion in 2015, receiving a first class honours. She has participated in both solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally and was the first artist from Northern Ireland to be awarded an art residency to India in 2016 by The Arts Council NI and British Arts Council. She was also an invited artist at The Textile and Fibre Art Symposium at the Mark Rothko Centre in Latvia in 2017.
Ellie is now completing her Masters in Fine Art at Central St. Martins in London.
