Ellis is a renowned artist from Blantyre, Malawi, the country’s largest urban area and one of Africa’s oldest cities. The city has historical ties to Scotland, as it is named after Blantyre, Scotland. Blantyre today is a vibrant metropolis with a thriving business and tourism scene, characterized by numerous historical buildings and monuments.

Ellis grew up in a bustling household, being one of six children and a twin. To find solace amidst the busyness and the loss of his father, Ellis turned to art as an escape. His father was a well-known artist who unfortunately passed away when Ellis was only eighteen years old. Although Ellis had shown an interest in art from a young age, his father initially discouraged him, fearing it might interfere with his studies.

During his father’s illness, Ellis began completing his father’s unfinished works to cope with the potential loss. When his father passed away, Ellis decided to follow in his footsteps and began creating and exhibiting his own art across Malawi and other parts of Africa.

Ellis’s artistic style is deeply rooted in the spirit of his father and is greatly influenced by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. In addition to pursuing his artistic endeavors, Ellis also finds joy in teaching. He currently teaches at an elementary school for the deaf and Blantyre’s school for orphans, sharing his passion and skills with the next generation.

Overall, Ellis’s journey as an artist, his connection to his father’s legacy, and his dedication to both his craft and teaching have made him one of Malawi’s most respected and celebrated artists.
