Edreys Wajed

On Award Tour Artwork by Ederys Wajed

KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall

Ederys Wajed investigates humanity through storytelling, consumerism and social justice, with an affinity for the beauty of human error in handmade objects, mark-making and documenting human experience. Rhythm, line, vibrant color palettes, and form are elements that bind his work as a thread across practices, whether exploring sound, figurative and abstract imagery, or small wearable objects.
