Colorado Springs, CO
Video Installation Performance Artist
Atomic Elroy is a time based media artist working in video installation and performance, and a combination of all three. Elroy considers himself a Conceptual Art Humorist using a self mocking approach to all artistic values and standards. Never quite knowing if he is involved in self parody, or just frustrated with the art world’s pedantic nature, he always goes for the humor.
