ABOUT:

Elliott Arndt is a film maker, an artist, musician, graduate of London College of Communications, and a member of Vanishing Twin. Elliott also has a solo musical project he works on, called Luara.

Elliott is originally from France, a nationality he splits with an American one, and grew up in Luxembourg before coming to London. 

I am constantly exploring the world around me. My paintings feature symbols that are, perhaps, a bold attempt at representing my thought process, identity and everyday life, whilst photography has greatly helped me understand and research the elements of my surroundings.

 A number of specific threads have been driving my latest output. A recent source of inspiration has been coming from ancient modes of communication, symbolism, and storytelling. Having researched Egyptian hieroglyphs, Native-American totems or rebus from the middle-ages, I have become very interested in these global and visceral means of visual construction, which lend themselves to the modes of presentation I prefer to use. In our image-saturated world, where the human eye is forced to take in rising amounts of information in ever shorter intervals, I am interested in exploring how we are able to decipher more and more complex narratives with quicker readings and how the brain has learnt to amalgamate popular symbols to create other ideas.
