Ellis Gallagher takes over the sidewalks @ South Beach during Miami Art Basel

Here is Ellis Gallagher @ work!
Don't mind the photo, I was drinking between parties when I ran into him!

ARTmostfierce saw Ellis Gallagher work everywhere in South Beach. I mean, he was busy!
It was kind of great walking on Collins Avenue where a lot of the small satellite Art Fairs happened and during the night most of the parties took place, you always were able to see Ellis street graffiti even after having too many drinks!

It was not only a refreshing visual experience but , the graffiti art displayed mostly on the sidewalk, was a great transition statement between the art fairs with the parties. He is represented by Sara Tecchia Gallery in NYC. See more information below about Ellis.
