Angus likes art that is colourful. Bright, not too busy with defined lines. He’s often inspired by animals in landscape, movies as in retro pictures and car going around bends. He likes art making to connect to his own stories and memories and often thinks back to his childhood years especially good times. Angus consciously likes to paint on themes that bring positivity and happiness to him. Ed enjoys art recreationally and for social connection. Ed has worked on his woodworking skills over the lasts couple of years in particular creating objects that are meaningful to his interests. Being a sports lover, last year he hand made and sanded his own cricket bat. Ed has enjoyed turning his hand to painting and sculpture at his home during lock down. When painting he often compares creative choices he makes around colour and shape to another interest of his, puzzles. Ed also enjoys collaboration, great humour and a good chat when making art with others.

Artist Bio

Angus and Ed chose to work together on this piece during lockdown 2020. They took inspiration from American Artist, George Condo. They named the piece, George, not after the artist but because Ed often likes to refer to anyone who he doesn’t know well as George. Both came upon this name and were happy with it as a name for the piece. Angus and Ed enjoyed working together, building up the lines and colours using their fingers rather than a brush. Neither particularly enjoy painting with a brush but they both liked the feeling of the paint under their gloved hands. This unusual technique allowed a very tactile experiencing of paint application and created a unique aesthetic that both artists were pleased with on completion of the work.
