ELEANOR CRANE is a creator of sorts; working in forms of paint, written word, pen & ink, and found objects. Self-taught from infancy, she was born overseas, grew up in the east, and currently resides in the west.
Eleanor’s art embodies a subtle undercurrent of dark, emotional expressionism to unlock the complexities of the human condition; to give a voice to the vulnerable, and to connect with people by manifesting memory and symbolism through the tools of surrealism and the power of imagery.
Eleanor was a finalist in New York's Artist Wanted Gallery Art Competition Power Of Self, being chosen from thousands of participating artists worldwide. In 2015, Eleanor won an Independent Music Award in the category of Best Album Artwork for her work on the Patrick Joseph album Moon King, which was a series she created in 2014 inspired by the music from the record. Eleanor has exhibited at the 3rd Annual La Luz De Jesus Coaster Show in Los Angeles, California, alongside notable artists at the birthplace of pop surrealism in Los Angeles. Her pieces have most recently graced the walls of galleries in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Norway.
In the summer of 2017, Eleanor’s work will be featured as apart of the Art Feature across three issues of the UK’s House and Garden Magazine in celebration of their 70th anniversary.
Eleanor Crane is currently working on a small-canvas oil series inspired by themes of childhood fears, realities, and nightmares. Alongside her public exhibits, Eleanor is also active in commission work and the creation of art in the world of music. She is an active member of the vibrant art scene in Los Angeles, California, where she resides with her creative partner in crime and two feline companions.
