Who am I?
My name is Ed and I’m a UK artist (based in Gloucestershire) selling my original art, and doing commissions, all over the world.
Swarez isn’t my real name but it’s a nickname that seemed to fit really well many years ago so I kept it. Oh, and just 10 short years ago I was delivering parcels for a living. Just goes to show what you can do with a small idea and big dreams. Learn about my back story.
What I do
I create one-off original paintings; lovingly crafted, exquisitely detailed and filled with an honesty rarely seen in today’s disposable marketplace. Originals are never replicated and I don’t do prints of anything. What you see is exactly what you get. Every paint stroke, every photograph and every last bit of this website is done by me.
Thankfully now though I employ the services of my best friend Adrian who works alongside me taking care of material technologies, quality control and installation logistics. I still make the tea though.
Work hard; reward yourself
Be bold, be brave and let your heart run free. You work tirelessly for the things you want in life; so don’t compromise with your art. Take a stand, put a stake in the ground and phone me now.
Don’t stop to think about your soft furnishings, just let the painting wash over you then re-decorate around it if you have to. I do some pretty extraordinary things with paint and canvas – drop me a line and tell me what you really, really want in your life. Bland is what your neighbours do.
There will come a day when your wise purchase will yield a value far in excess of its future financial potential. I am not deep, tempestuous or filled with angst, I just love to paint, plain and simple.
His skills in figuring things out and applying them to practical solutions is extraordinary. No matter what I need he’s able to come up with an answer. Chances are that if you visit the Gallery or find us in your home he’ll be there.
It’s a rare thing finding someone who is as passionate about what you do and even rarer for that be someone you care about. But somehow it fits into place and we have an unparalleled dynamic that suits what we do very well. I am enormously proud of him (but don’t tell him as he’ll get a swell-head!)
His attention to detail verges on obsessive, which in my line of work is brilliant. So to is his commitment and desire to bring the finest quality original art into your home. If his qualities as a human being could be bottled and sold I could have retired long ago.
