Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Oil on board
14 x 11 inches
Rehs Contemporary Galleries, Inc., New York City
My painting was inspired by one of my favorite classical composers Gustav Holst's second movement from his planet suite "Venus, the bringer of Peace". I wanted my representation of Venus to be portrayed as a pure and lovely figure in a tranquil environment.
Inspired by: "Venus, the Bringer or Peace" by Gustav Holst
Edward was always fascinated by and passionate about the act of drawing and painting, Edward has spent the majority of his life pursuing the knowledge and discipline of these time-honored crafts. Fine Art, Illustration, and Graphics were equally appealing to Edward and therefore offered him the opportunity to absorb a vast spectrum of influences and disciplines.
His enthusiasm continued to grow through his academic years as his hometown college allowed him to meet and study under renowned artists such as Leonard Stankunas and Anthony J. Waichulis. Upon completion of his degree programs, Edward studied the figure independently. While this was extremely rewarding, the desire to immerse himself into a more formal system of training for Representational painting and drafting, led Edward to accept a position as an apprentice at Ani Art Academy Waichulis. Here, he had the opportunity to work alongside some of the most recognized Representational painters and draftsmen of today.
Currently Ed is the Instructor of Ani Art Academies Dominicana where he has the privilege of passing on knowledge that he has gained to an upcoming generation of artists.
