Effy Alece Francis was born in Marietta, GA in 1992 to the artist, Christy Aitken. Publishing under the trade name E. Alece, they work primarily in digital media. Under their mother’s influence, Effy was self-taught from age 10. Believing the human body to be the ultimate art form, Effy imbues their pieces with surreal eroticism and symbolism. Coming out as non-binary transgender in 2017, Effy’s artwork speaks to their experience and intersecting identities as a queer, disabled individual.
Currently based in Columbia, SC, Effy has shown their work at:
United Arts Council Raleigh, The Everyday 2018
VAE Raleigh, Ultralight 2 2018
701 CCA Open Studios 2013
