John Edwards (ARBS) Biography

Jonh Edwards was born in London in 1938.

Edwards is one of the UK's more senior artists in the abstract tradition. Alongside a distinguished career as a lecturer, culminating in his appointment in 1986 as Head of Painting and Sculpture at St Martin's School of Art in London, he has also lectured widely in the US, notably at Syracuse University and the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

As well as continuing to paint and make prints, he has for the last ten years concentrated on bringing painterly qualities, and in particular colour, to sculpture.
