Ellie Hannon is an Australian artist who works out of her studio in Newcastle NSW. Traversing the fields of exhibition work, public art and community engagement projects in her practice, Ellie establishes a visual narrative that explores the themes of values and our relationship with our environments, researching and investigating how our interactions with the natural environment shape our personal and collective identities.
Since completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Newcastle University in 2009 Ellie has spent 3 years living in South East Asia working on community art projects. Returning to Australia in 2014 Ellie’s practice evolved to encompass working on large scale site specific murals that depict abstracted scenes from nature. Ellie has collaborated on projects most recently with the NSW Government “My Community Grant,” initiative, designing and facilitating workshops for a community courtyard revitalisation; Big Picture Festival mural projects, and has collaborated with Marrawuddi Arts Centre liaising with local community members and stakeholders to design and install large scale murals with local Indigenous artists.
