BLACK LIVES MATTER
“Ted [Ellis]’s artwork not only tells a story about the journey of our great nation but evokes a feeling of empowerment and hope.”
—Congressman Randy Weber of Texas
Ted Ellis is a self-taught painter with a penchant for learning and educating as well as creating. He refers to his style as, "Tedism," a blend of folk art and impressionism. His paintings are direct in their messaging and put juxtaposition to good use as he deems necessary. Much of Mr. Ellis' work is political in subject and potently impactful.
