Ed Kluz – Monument October 06 2015

From 14th to 31st October 2015, Ed Kluz will be exhibiting a series of new mixed media collages at the John Martin Gallery at 38 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JG.

Ed Kluz is an artist, illustrator and printmaker. His work explores contemporary perceptions of the past through the reimagining of historic landscapes, buildings and objects. The ideas of early Romanticism, the Picturesque movement and antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image making. He has a particular interest in the eccentric, uncanny and overlooked – follies, lost country houses and ruins provide a constant source of inspiration.

As a designer and illustrator Ed has received commissions from the V&A, Faber, Folio Society, John Murray publishers and Little Toller Books, in addition to the fabrics he has designed for St Jude's.

Ed was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art between 1999 – 2002. He now lives in East Sussex.
