Biography

Austin Eddy was born in Boston, Massachusettes in 1986. After graduating from the Art Institute in Chicago in 2009, Eddy spet several years living and working in Chicago before moving to New York City. Eddy's works are characterized by their skewed perspectives and dimensional flatness, influenced by Cubism of the early twentieth century. Eddy creates a delicate balance between figuration and abstraction. His works are often autobiographical, sharing scenes from his real life experiences. However, Eddy describes, "Yes, the work has always been about things I have seen, felt, or thought. But letting go of that personal narrative part and allowing a larger interpretation to take place is the end goal I guess, Letting go of your self so others can find you". Today, the artist lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
