About Ed Valentine

Painter Ed Valentine is known for his visually stimulating, kinetic works, which he creates with graffiti-like oil and acrylic paint on canvas. Using fragmented or asymmetrical figures and geometric imagery, Valentine’s work combines Pop art, modernism, surrealism, and street art. Upside-down eyes, circles, and polka-dots are common motifs in his work. “For me it simply all boils down to making slightly odd and interesting things to look at,” the artist has said, “things which are halting and provoke a level of inquiry.”

American, b. 1951, Columbus, Ohio, based in Jersey City, New Jersey
