Eli West

“Felt is disorderly, entropic, full of entrapped energy” Susan Brown, Felt Craft
The Artist

Eli West is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice has an emphasis on textiles, specifically felting techniques. In 2021 they received an MFA in Applied Craft + Design from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Eli’s practice is a painterly, garish, and joyful reflection on a queer human experience. They primarily work with wool and other fibers to create wall hangings, sculptural pieces, and soft abstractions with a high level of detail and precision. Their studio is currently based out of 40 West Arts District in Lakewood Colorado.
