The Harley Jae Trust is delighted to welcome another supporter to our family.
Ed Waite is a contemporary artist who kindly donated a print to our Charity Ball, which sold for an amazing £3250 in our auction.
Born in Sheffield in 1989, he studied Fine Art at The University of Lincoln. After graduation he stopped painting completely and travelled the world for 2 years. His travels took him across the globe from Brazil to Australia, where he referenced the places he visited through sketchbooks full of notes, drawings and ideas.
Upon his return, Ed started to turn all of his sketches and notes into larger pieces of artwork and soon developed his signature style.
Known for his vivid 3D cityscapes, he has painted iconic landmarks from cities around the world including Paris, New York, and of course, London. Each work perfectly captures the bright lights and constant rush of urban life, thanks to his bold, colour-filled technique; first inspired by ketchup bottles in a New York Diner!
His vast portfolio now consists of an array of different projects. Last year, saw Edward collaborate with a Saville Row Tailor, to design a suit with his painting printed onto the lining and more recently his artwork has also been wrapped around a full-scale replica phone box! Another of these projects combines art with technology, the new Edward Waite App, allows people all over the world to engage with Edward’s artwork by creating their own virtual cityscape using his signature sauce bottles.
Now, he is going to be supporting the work of the Harley Jae Trust.
Ed said: “The Harley Jae Trust is the lasting memory of a little boys magical but short life. When I discovered the work they do to support children with life-limiting conditions and the endless time they spend fund raising with different projects I was very happy to get involved and will continue to donate my artworks to raise money for such an inspiring charity.”
