Elliot Doddâs art is rich in cultural references, includes opposites and spans different mediums. It is distinctively of its time.
The assumption lies close that his point of view is not only grounded in time but equally tied to the influence of a specific socio-geographic location: London. The UKâs capital is where the artist lives and has been studying, finishing his fine art degree at the acclaimed Slade School of Fine Art in 2002. It is a city of contrasts, of flying financiers and world-renowned art institutions, of Charles Dickens and the smelly Thames, of chicken shops and Gordon Ramsay, of the east end and never ending gentrification.
In short, it is a city which contains worlds, and Elliot Dodd seems to move through them being keenly aware.
