Austin Eddy is an abstract painter currently working in Brooklyn, NY. 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'.
Austin Eddy was born in 1986 in Boston, MA, US, currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, US. He earned his BFA in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010.
