Ed Kluz reinterprets centuries old traditional techniques

Ed Kluz finds inspiration in the historical objects, buildings, landscape and folklore of Britain and uses them as starting points for vibrant images that explore themes of renewal, reinvention and the passing of time. A multi talented craftsman, he is a printmaker, illustrator, painter, collage artist and designer. Kluz’s detailed and meticulous research into early Renaissance painting has led him to experiment with and reinterpret centuries old traditional techniques. Amongst other materials, he works with egg tempera, gum Arabic, gold leaf on vellum and gessoed oak panels.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
