Born in the Bronx, Ellenzweig studied architecture at NCSU under Buckminster Fuller. After traveling to Italy on a Fullbright scholarship, he worked first in Colorado and then in Boston as a professional architect. But throughout his life, he created two dimensional artwork, writing that his “paintings and drawings reflect a vision informed by the architect’s eye, a passion for forms found in nature and images of cities — the shared heritage of real places in real time merging with an imagined and abstracted urban landscape.” (Marquand, Bryan. "Harry Ellenzweig; designed elegant structures for academia, public transport." Boston Globe. June 23, 2014)
