Edgar D. Ere is an upcoming artist within the world of Instagram and Tumblr, his tongue and cheek approach can instantaneously put a smile on your face. What makes his art particularly unique is the way people interact with everyday objects; from a person driving a shoe like it’s a car, to a woman lying casually within a split paracetamol capsule, Edgar’s artwork is certainly making an impact.
We wanted to feature Edgar on our Brand Spotlight this month and interview him on inspirations and what advice he could give to other like-minded artists.
Take a look at Edgar’s artwork here for regular updates:

What is your source of inspiration for your artwork?
Oh thank you so much. What makes it distinct? I guess my work is simple, looks humorous and is relevant to other people. It’s much more fun letting the audience feel free to decided about my work and interpret it the way they want.
Did you professionally train in art? What age were you when you found your ‘style’?
I studied at faculty of fine art with a design major, but I was learning art from my friends, other artists, and gaining experience as well. I’ve always been trying to adapt my style, it’s only until now I have found something that I could resonate with.
Tell me something that your fans/followers don’t know
Cool question, I would choose the watch. Honestly I’m a bit disorganized when it come’s to my schedule, more spontaneously you know hahaha. The watch would be useful to remind me about the deadline aarrgghh.
When was a time you felt discouraged and how did you overcome it?
When I was lost my family or my friends, I felt like I lost my supporters too. How I did overcome it? Just by taking care of my family/friends and love them more than ever.
What is next for you? Where would you like to see your work go next?
Like dollars said “In God We Trust” hahaha.
