Gerald Edwards

Born 1985, raised in Daytona Beach, FL. The Brooklyn-based artist studied at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and graduated with an award for creative excellence in 2007. Edwards has mentored under photographer Gregory Crewdson since 2004. Since then he has taken up with the notorious surf gang, The Goons, which has led to development of sustainable surfboard manufacturing materials, treehouses, and Bollywood style dance party beach cleanups. At the same time, and in a parallel universe, Edwards has been working with the collectives Visual Buffet Public Arts, and the alternative transportation environmental non-profit Blotus.org. His personal work deals with the reconstruction and fabrication of histories through composited large-format photographs and sculptural elements. He has exhibited in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. In 2009, look for the new periodical Radical! Journal, which dives deeply into the fringes of surf culture the world over.
