Eloise Gillow is a visual artist from the UK, working internationally.

After studying classical realist painting, Eloise combines painting in the studio with murals in public space, motivated by the direct connection between the artwork and communities.

Her imagery is drawn from her surroundings, capturing subtle gestures that draw our attention to moments of everyday life, while also commenting on larger societal issues. She creates images that open up to interpretation on individual as well as collective levels.

 

She invites the viewer to reflect on where and how they find vitality, moments of slowing down and to reach into a deeper undercurrent of connection to each other and the natural world, a process that is often blocked by our fast-paced lifestyles and restrictive political and economic systems.
