My name is Ella Bril, I am a dutch painter. I currently live in a Amsterdam. I love to mix and match color, to see what it does to the eye. I also love nature, in every form. People intrige me and the world never fails to amaze me. All together, these are the things that inspire me to make art.
Over the years I learnt to look differently. Which made me capable to absorb the things around me. I create my own version of reality and try to capture moments and images that live in my head. Ideas come to me. Lots of them. They often paralyzed me, and I wasn't able to create order in the chaos which is my brain. For years, I did not allow my creativity to fully shine. eventually It made me lose myself, and I realized I could actually use that creative energy in different ways. I could use it to create beautiful things. To be a maker.
In my work, you will find traces of contemporary art mixed with a figurative style; inspired by fauvism and expressionism. You'll find emotions through use of colour and expressions on faces. You'll find moments and memories.You'll find nature and people. But most of all, you'll find a story.
