Painter and sculptor John Edwards was considered one of the rising stars in the British Art scene in the 60s and 70s. Stylistically influenced by the abstract expressionists that came in favour in New York at the time, his paintings possess a sculptural feel as well.
The forms are abstract and his colours bold and vibrant, Edwards' work is not easily grouped with any one movement. In London the Rowan Gallery housed nine shows for him between 1967-1981. He exhibited widely in Syracuse, Washington, San Francisco, Turin, Jaipur and New Delhi.
