About Edmond Wilson:

Edmond’s motto is “if it can hold paint, I can do it”
Edmond was an artist for as long as he could remember, born and raised in New Jersey, Edmond started drawing and painting on the vinyl shades that covered his bedroom windows. His art started to develop in middle school when his art teacher introduced watercolor and acrylic paints. He attended the School of Visual Arts and after a 30-year hiatus from canvas painting, a gift of brushes from his mom rekindled his love for it. Today, he is a full time Artist working on all types of projects, from paper to clothing to football field logos and large scale murals working in his studio in Elkridge, Maryland. You can visit his Instagram page @edmond_russell_arts.

Edmond’s Inspiration & Advice to Aspiring Artists:

“How would you describe your art in 5 words?”

Wilson: “Bold, bright, emotional, fun, and personal”

“When or where does inspiration usually strike you?”

Wilson: “Inspiration strikes either through current events or reflection of childhood”

“What advice do you have for young artists?”

Wilson: “My advice for young artists is to embrace themselves as an artist. Practice your craft any and everywhere you can. Draw on any material. Paper bags, pizza boxes, mail, or cardboard. Just do it.”
