Mighty Tanaka presents:
A Survey of Works and Installation by Ellis Gallagher AKA Ellis G
Ellis Gallagher, AKA Ellis G, is the quintessential street artist, having created a highly unique and stylized interpretation of the City and its surroundings that New Yorkers take for granted. Through tracing of shadows with sidewalk chalk, his artwork is the very definition of temporary, marking a specific time and place that few are lucky enough to stumble upon. Mighty Tanaka is proud to bring you Permanently Temporary, A Survey of Works and Installation by Ellis Gallagher AKA Ellis G.
For the first time ever, original Ellis G shadow and chalk drawings will be made available to the public. The installation for Permanently Temporary will double as a performance piece during the opening reception on Friday, January 21st, as he will create custom shadow and chalk artwork on site for the gallery visitors. This special event translates an otherwise temporary form of art into an obtainable milestone of artistic interpretation.
Ellis Gallagher has paid his dues time and time again on the streets of NYC and throughout the world, as he has created an iconic technique that is recognized globally.
