Wynston Edun Art

Wynston Edun was born in Nigeria and emigrated to the United States in 1987 after receiving his degree in Fine Arts from the University of Benin. He constructs semi-abstract figures with spontaneous bursts of color and impulsive mark-making, using both traditional and non-traditional techniques. Edun’s inspiration derives from human behaviors and characteristics which he depicts by layering color and texture with palette knives, brushes and natural sponges. Inspired by the narrative figurative style of traditional African art, Edun’s influences include artists of the African modernist genre who combine traditional and contemporary aesthetics to convey emotion.
