  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

The results in awkward figures and environments that are cartoons and fluorescent carefully-masterfully modelled Josiah Ellner, who grew up in a Chinese city with over nine million people and with few green spaces and very limited wildlife, has always felt disconnected from the natural world. Despite these feelings of alienation, he found himself strangely attracted to the natural world. From his personal experiences of meeting and involvement with nature, Ellner weaves playful narratives that capture intimate moments of this connection.
