Map portraits by Ed Fairburn

TheeBlog-EdFairburn Let’s be honest, when was the last time you checked a map? An not the one on your phone, but a real map? Chances are, you haven’t done this in a while, unless you are a tourist or a wife/girlfriend fixed on making a point and showing your better half how lost he is. But it’s not all bad news for old printed maps, Cardiff based artist Ed Fairburn’s beautiful map-portraits bring old maps and their intricate beauty back to life as a unique canvas for Ed’s stunning work.

Illustration graduate whose work is mostly figurative. I paint, draw and construct using a flexible range of tangible media across a wide range of surfaces and contexts, allowing my practice to exist across various disciplines. The work I produce is largely self-directed, allowing me to explore a wealth of ideas and concepts which need to be realised.
