Darrel Ellis

Press release

Darrel Ellis – Matter

Darrel Ellis was a black US-american artist. He was only 33 when he died of AIDS in New York in 1992. His promising artwork was largely forgotten after his death. Today, it could not be more topical. His father, Thomas Ellis, lost his life one month before Darrel was born. He died after being stopped by a traffic control in the Bronx, brutally killed by police, like George Floyd, whose murder has fueled the Black Lives Matter movement.
