Eddie Hamilton’s work is primarily
acrylic on canvas but also includes mixed media on wood panel. His direct and playful work represents the emotion, energy,
and interactions of people in their communities.
paintings are developed after research and reflection on the concept to be represented.
Currently, his work is the result of studying gentrification and interpersonal human urban contact. Acrylics, ink, and crayon
are used because of the ability to quickly apply and layer these materials resulting in a continuous flow of work in one sitting.
His visual representation of people and the urban setting has been greatly influenced
by his childhood in California. His fascination with communities and the urban life is a result of living in vastly different
areas as a child and an adult search for a sense of a community to call his own.
