I'm Edd and I am artist and designer
Poster Art and Landscapes, largely but not exclusively of our urban environment
I love sharp lines, bright colours, rough textures, patterns and a little humour. Urban, industrial, residential and rural scenes all feature in my work. I am always on the look out for inspiration and with my camera as my viewfinder I am constantly snapping views, skies and textures which I use in my art. I use a mixture of mediums in both my paintings and Digital work.
My "MadeUp" posters series combines my landscape art with typography. Inspired by film, music and books these designs are filled with local trivia, history, pop culture references and humour. My inspirations include Pop Art, 20century advertising posters and Far Eastern art (especially calligraphy & woodblock prints).
Alongside my artwork I also design and produce my own range of merchandise.
Throughout my business practice I try to be as environmentally aware as possible.
I have actively reduced single use plastic over the last few years. Examples of this include using paper packing tape; reusing postal packaging where possible ;using paper products for display packaging and labels; recycling my studio waste.
Alongside this I use local/UK/Scottish suppliers to cut down on delivery mileage and I sell my artwork and products through local independent businesses.
