While using both hands and multiple brushes, Elliott begins an explosive performance – throwing paint, challenging the audience, sometimes carefully painting red lips on the canvas, or rapidly making a blue and purple background to finish a painting.
Elliott’s paintings of famous rock icons, public figures, celebrities, and commissioned portraits are choreographed to a musical experience. The paintings are created on a 4 foot by 5 foot black canvas, taking the audience through an exciting musical journey, and finally creating a likeness of the subject in a matter of minutes.
Elliott has taken performance art and made it his own with a unique musical, visual and painting style, unveiling the energy and passion of his subjects. Elliott conveys one compelling message to his audiences.
