About Austin Eddy

Brooklyn-based painter Austin Eddy creates autobiographical paintings that straddle the line between figuration and abstraction. His monochromatic works—mixtures of oil pastel, cardboard, spray-paint, and newsprint—have been described as Picassoeque, with their flattened and fractured forms harkening back to 20th century Cubism. These works take inspiration from relationships in the artist’s personal life, whether a case of romantic rejection or a lost encounter with a stranger at a bar. Eddy’s more recent works feature abstract compositions of colorful, curvilinear shapes, which often resemble landscapes, hands, or portraits of women.

American, b. 1986, Boston, Massachusetts, based in Brooklyn, New York
