An expressionist portrait of a man, rendered in confident strokes of brown, yellow, burnt orange, blues and green. "I create portraits which tend to reveal too much detail, and too little, thereby creating a tension that draws a reaction from the viewer in a back and forth dialogue of engagement," says Wynston. "The paintings are oftentimes moody and emotional - these elements are derived from my process of using loose brushstrokes to create an underpainting that I finish by drawing marks with oil sticks."

Wynston Edun

Columbia, Maryland

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. Wynston’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, Wynston’s influences include artists of the African modernist genre who combine traditional and contemporary aesthetics to convey emotion.
