Ellington Bramwell

Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment

As a Chicagoan I split my early school years between sports and the city’s art culture before studying Media and Studio Art at Pomona College in California. My time as a Graduate at the School of Art Institute of Chicago provided space for me to continue exploring ideas through installation, sculpture, visual imagery and garment.

Fueling these ideas are personal reflections to how I negotiate escapism, vulnerability, body movement and spectatorship. My practice today is a cumulative pursuit towards personal visibility that I wish to expand through design, installation, video and media.

An equally instrumental facet of my practice concerns art’s consumption and its accessibility. Through this lens I pursue ways of democratizing art via community workshops, software instruction and art supply drives. These ideas and values expand the bounds of my practice and hopefully hold new conversations
