Drawing, Painting

Ellie Noir is a figurative painter based in Adelaide, Australia. Through pose, gesture and lighting, her visually poetic paintings tell stories about the people and places that surround her.

In 2012 Noir received a Bachelor of Visual Art from Adelaide Central School of Art. She has since undertaken studies at Studio Escalier in Paris and Argenton-Chateau, France (2012-2016) and at the Art Students League of New York, USA (2015).

Noir has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including the Pro Hart Scholarship, Australia Council Art Start Grant, Waterway Fellowship, Tanza Lorraine Smith Fellowship and the Carbins Trust Prize Youth Award. Her work has been selected for the Waterhouse Prize, the Kennedy Prize, the RSASA/SALA Portrait Prize, the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and most recently the Art Renewal Center International Salon.
