edwin_lester-who_is

Edwin Lester,

 was born in Philadelphia, PA. He is a self-taught artist who brings a very sophisticated and technically advanced style of realism to his figurative and atmospheric paintings. His work centers on themes that are important and personal to him. The narrative approach allows the artist to convey an emotion, a moment in time as if reading without the turning of pages. For the artist, art and life are one, and life and his belief in the teachings of the Bible should leave no canvas unpainted, for the stories are many.

 

He brings the joy he has found in his beliefs to the act of making art. “I just love what I do”, he says in his artist statement, “and when I walk out into the world each day, there is so much to see, so much to paint”. The popular artist has produced a successful line of best-selling limited edition and open edition prints and has exhibited at Galleries and museums across the nation. He is an award wining artist at major art events, fairs and shows. His work is currently collected and sought after world wide.

 If you want to paint something you don’t see , close your eyes to what you have seen .”
