About Me

My photo
Magnetic Island., Queensland., Australia
ARTIST PROFILE. (Edward Blum). I have painted and drawn since childhood, as a form of identity and purpose. It provides out side of family the single most powerful force predominating my life as far back as I can recollect and is symbiotic of my future. I look forward to this future which will be consumed pursuing art personally and professionally. As an artist I would like to capture the human condition, basic emotion and our essence. A freedom to look deeper than thought and express in a far more powerful medium, using color figuratively and in abstracted form. A universal language defined by the human condition. It is this place in the human psyche where what we visualize is interwoven not only by what we interpret that we see. But is also tainted by the shadow of our past. A distortion of our perceptions of reality as we believe it to be.. Ultimately it is here that my mind finds interest, and I foresee my artistic future evolving.

  3. Wow, I really love your paintings, they are all amazing!
    It's so strange, but I dreamed of a beautiful scenery about a year ago, and ever since then, I've been wanting to recreate that scenery on canvas, but that scenery looks similar to your paintings! I've been using my free time to practice drawing so that I can paint that scenery from my dream and I hope that I will one day be able to draw original, and beautiful paintings like you :D

  5. I like so much your colorful paintings!
