Ed Isaacs

Wolverhampton-based artist, Ed Isaacs, explores the world through the medium of colored pencils and pen. His large-scale drawings are created from meticulous mark making often juxtaposing incongruous imagery or exploring surfaces in minute detail.

As an enthusuastic urban sketcher, he carries his sketchbook with him everywhere. These drawings can form the basis for his larger-scale studio work or for publications that record his deep interest in travelling and topograhy.

He is a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and is currently that organisation’s Honorary Curator. His work is in collections at Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the RBSA.
