As an artist, Eddie’s talent could be seen at an early age, granting his attendance at the High School of Art and Design, where he studied photography and illustration. Although, his artwork has been considered lowbrow and controversial, it has been published and featured in numerous books, music videos, and exhibitions around the world. His more recent works have been less contentious and more spiritual, while keeping his dark surreal style that he is known for.
