"La palette cromatica, l’importanza della composizione e della simmetria, l’aspetto inatteso, la libertà nella ricerca dei materiali: tutti questi elementi creano un'inconfondibile armonia nelle opere di Austin Eddy."
Austin Eddy was born in 1986 (Boston). Eddy currently works and lives in New York. In 2009 he received a degree from Art Institute of Chicago.
The artist creates autobiographical artworks between representation and imagination. He uses mixed techniques such as crayons, oils, and papers. His paintings were described as “Picassiani” thanks to their disjointed forms that refers to Cubism movement and they are the result of the different personal relationship of the artist. In fact, Eddy takes inspiration from all the people he meets, whether it’s possible romances or strangers he met at the bar.
Eddy was included in many national and international group exhibitions, among which “Buying Friends” exhibited at Urban Institute of Contemporary Art of Grand Rapids Michigan.
