Lee Eelus, a.k.a. Lee Pennington, began by selling illustrated posters of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the school playground. After moving to London during the beginning of the century, he discovered the rising street-art scene in London and began developing his signature, stencil based style under the pseudonym of Eelus. Banksy found his work and included him in the immortal 'Pictures on Walls' collaborative where his debut print editions instantly sold out, catapulting his career to success and cementing his name as a collectors' favourite. Taking inspiration from pop culture, art history and graphic design, his work explores various juxtapositions and relationships such as light and dark, the comical within the frightening and beauty within the everyday.
He has exhibited across the world in institutions such as the Saatchi Gallery, Dubai Walls in Dubai, the London Westbank Gallery in Ibiza, Urban Nation in Berlin, the Ambush Gallery in Sydney, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles and the Vertical Gallery in Chicago, among others.
