Ed Fairburn’s map art portraits

Ed Fairburn » Deutschland via colossal.

Ink on a 1977 road map of Germany.

The work I produce is largely figurative, and through the exploration of the human form I examine the patterns and structures which exist across the body. Emphasis is placed on the ‘fragmented’ texture of the skin, a process which has encouraged my work to evolve from its occupation of plain paper to the potential occupation of other, pre-fragmented or pre-patterned surfaces.

This drawing was produced as part of a wider submission to Cowbridge Music Festival.
