About Ellen Sheidlin

Described by Beautiful Bizarre as "Nabokov’s most twisted fantasy made true," Ellen Sheidlin is infusing Instagram with surrealist provocation. Embracing the platform in her early teens as an ideal outlet for her self-portrait shock and awe dreamscapes, the Russian artist and model has attracted global attention for her escapist, absurdist color-drenched photography. Ellen’s imagery serves as an existential commentary about exhibitionist modern culture. Amassing 4M+ followers and an a-list clientele including Nike, Paypal, BMW and L’Oréal, Ellen is turning her surrealist fantasy world into an influential reality, "I’m already awake... yet my dream continues."
