About the Artist: Self-taught, multidimensional artist Edd Han, hails from Capitol Heights, MD-steps away from the nation's capital. He discovered his love for exploring his creativity in the midst of moving from home to home during his foundational/adolescent years. After experiencing the unexpected assassination of his best friend, Edd decided to fully embrace his inner child and pursue art as a career as a means to escape his environment.

 

Artist Statement: "Communication is key. Without communicating, it is impossible to attain anything. Food, water, shelter, and entertainment are all attained through some level of interaction with the outside world. While deprived of social engagement, I created my own community by sculpting various multifunctional pieces between Fall of 2020 and Spring of 2021. My work depicts ancestral figures, each with their own flare of personality, with their heads above water, the most essential element of life. If you study history, you will find that a lot of knowledge was lost at sea during the transatlantic slave trade. Entire cultures, generational traditions, washed away. Through my work, I hope to honor my ancestors whose bodies rest at sea and celebrate one of the most captivating aspects of Black Culture today, hair." ~ Edd Han
