About Ed


UK-based illustrator Ed Fairburn creates portraits on maps, incorporating the roads and other map features into the likenesses.

Ed explains his work by saying, “I paint, draw and construct using a flexible range of tangible media across a wide range of surfaces and contexts, allowing my practice to exist across various disciplines. The work I produce is largely self-directed, allowing me to explore a wealth of ideas and concepts which need to be realised.”

These are genuinely great ideas in on the topic of blogging.

You have touched some nice factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.
