Elle is a female graffiti and street artist based in Brooklyn, noteworthy for her use of diverse mediums and tools on the street including but not limited to; fire extinguishers, rollers, aeresol, markers, acrylic and silkscreens to create a variety of tags, fills, murals, wheatpastes, sculptures, and bus shelter AD replacements. She has scaled and painted billboards along the Brooklyn Queens Expressway freeway, installed a piece in the Urban Nation Museum in Berlin, and had a 200 foot video projection on the facade of the New Museum in New York. In Spring 2014 she had a collaborative exhibition with renowned photographer Martha Cooper. She has been active on the streets for over five years.

Most recently ELLE has been focusing on ad-takeovers with keys she received from the Public Ad Campaign, hand cutting colored mylar to create collages of images that she then illegally inserts into bus shelters in place of advertisements.

She has been commissioned by IKEA to produce a poster that will be for sale in every IKEA worldwide at the beginning of 2015. She has also done collaborations with the Guess Foundation, Lyft and clothing company Mishka. In 2014 ELLE painted in Mexico City with All City Canvas, as well as painting in LA, Israel, and Malaysia with Urban Nation. She recently received sponsorship by the art material company Liquitex and is one of their brand ambassadors.

In 2015 ELLE will head to San Francisco to paint with OneBrush Initiative and exhibit with Rocha Gallery, followed by a summer painting tour through Europe.
