"Most of my paintings are based on photos that capture my imagination. I'm fascinated with the process of breaking down a photo into its base elements and finding opportunities for shape, tone, and color. When I start a new composition, I generally focus on what can be discarded before considering what to add. My goal is to filter out anything extraneous while adding elements that help tell the story behind it.”
After graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in Studio Art, Ed pursued a career in animation, while also exploring the local street art scene in Austin. His work embraces the techniques of street art while retaining the clean lines and shapes used in animation. His work can be seen on murals, paste-ups and in galleries around Austin.
