Edward Walters

Born 1958
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 2000

Edward is an architect of space in his artwork. Modular and geometric forms reminiscent of skyscrapers present like a Bauhaus metropolis, handily realized through Edward’s affinity for rulers and stencils. His latest work incorporates letter templates, using the stencil to piece together original maxims like, “Say In Your Office” or “Creative Need To Leave Me Alone.” What began as colorful typographic drawings have since expanded into three-dimensional wooden signs that appear perfunctory and instructional; however, upon closer examination they too read like a mismatched phrase with a wry sense of humor.
