Artist Bio
Ed Coleman is a man who lives by colours. Bright ones. He is a visual artist residing in Halifax, Nova Scotia and his signature style using vivid colours and broad brushstrokes has become recognizable by many. Ed paints scenes of nature and water as well as cityscapes using lots of paint, most acrylic. He thrives on creating while outdoors, down the coast on a sailboat if possible. There is a freshness to his work, almost as if he was able to capture the breeze and sunlight he felt while painting. That elusive vitality is what draws people, so much so that he easily sells his work right on the wharf where it was painted.

Artist Statement

I love to paint with a loaded brush. In the summertime, I prefer to be outside. I find the plein air painting intoxicating. It assists in filling the canvas with atmosphere. Afterwards I bring them back to my studio to do some finishing touches or a larger version of the painting. The historical architecture of the Atlantic provinces excites me. The landscapes and seascapes in Eastern Canada are some of my favourite subjects to paint. During the winter in my studio I often take a palette knife and load it with paint and play with it on the canvas; often a very textural floral painting emerges.
