Born in 1973, Stephen Ellwood lives and works in New York.

Ellwood’s work uses language as a means for creating narratives and indexes in various formats, including video, books, posters, cards, wall works, and temporary installations. Typeset or handwritten on the wall, the words double as drawings, using language as a stand-in, and freestanding narratives, gleaned from hermetic and social experiences.

Selected wall works and a new edition of prints are temporarily on view. A special edition poster produced by Ellwood to announce the launch is also available.
