Edward Granger is a brand new artist and muralist to Fiercely Curious and he's rocked our world with his vibrant colors and his energetic lines.
Originally from Louisiana, Edward now maintains his studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn. He has a background in architecture and an astute eye for color. Edward's radiant vision translates through various mediums like cut paper, yarn, crayon, collage, paint and sculpture.
Some of my favorite works by Edward Granger are these cut paper studies. They are layered up and then cut and rearranged into what appears to be an origami map. Each work holds such relief, dimensionality and kaleidoscopical patterns as the colors overlay onto one another.
Pixel I, 20 x 16 Inches and Pixel II, 12 x 16 Inches
Theory of String, 20 x 16 Inches
Another stunning piece that Edward was working on during my studio visit is completed here:
Grid of the Infinite, 40 x 40 Inches
Edward Granger took the plunge into large scale works and now has quite a resume of offices and buildings throughout NYC that have commissioned his work.
A series of window installations commissioned by Hermès for their Vitrine d’Artiste edition by Edward Granger. Theme is Flâneur Forever, (translation, forever strolling).
"Working large scale at first frightened me, but I knew I had the skill set to do so relating back to my architectural days in school. It really challenged my senses and created a myriad of questions. I strongly believe that as humans we are accustomed to growth and knowledge particularly through challenges. I now find myself exploring with scales and proportions in all my works now, moving from micro to macro every step of the way." - Edward Granger
