Edison Ilan

Edison Ilan

From 2004-2008 Edison exhibited under the alias Triad (almost exclusively in St. Louis). Before that, between 1997 and 1999, he exhibited under his birth name. His current work, while surreal or representational, still reflects some aspect of his abstract years. Using an array of odd tools, including cake spatulas, tooth brushes and hair combs, Edison nearly completes an abstract version of his painting before including subjects. For a great majority of his painting career Edison used oils (more notably during the abstract period). After a year and a half hiatus from painting he found using oils was not immediate enough if he were to appreciate painting subjects again. Acrylics gave him the freedom to evolve a piece much more quickly. He is currently in the process of finishing the Mythological Creatures Series. Edison works and resides in St. Louis.
