Biography: The artist – Edward Ofosu
Born in Ghana (1973)
Edward is a self-taught artist. From the age of eight he knew he would be an artist. He wanted to paint as a career but was encouraged to study science by his family.
By 1997 he could no longer ignore his creative passion so started painting in his spare time. With no formal training Edward has learnt from magazines and other painters' work. He feels he should embrace his creative talent and commit to share it with others and keep working with what comes naturally. Throughout the years he has improved and acquired a state of inner peace by following his instincts and now desires to share his inner beauty with the world and convey the importance of communing with our souls.
His works are versatile and he likes to experiment with various mediums and forms of artwork. His works are based on realism but like exploring a more abstract style. Visionary artist Alex Grey and Leonardo Da Vinci have been his source of inspiration.
Edward moved to London six years ago and has taken part in group exhibitions. Last year, he exhibited with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters and was also a runner up in the Artist of the year award, organized by Artists & Illustrators magazine.
At the moment he is planning to go to art school to enable him to teach children and help them develop their hidden potentials.
