Ellis, Scott P.

b. 1970
Collage artist Scott P. Ellis was born in Colborne, Ontario, 1970. Scott started visually exploring the underground and punk rock scenes using photography in Montreal in the early nineties. The staged photographic work presented a visually challenging message directed at the perverted abuse of power in religious and corporate environments. Because of the costs and substantial coordination associated with staged photographic art, Ellis settled into the medium of collage for his artistic expression. In collage, he has chosen to regurgitate popular media and propaganda and serve up his own visual dish of worldly interpretation. After working for a decade as a bicycle courier and artist in Montreal he relocated to Toronto in 2000.
