Edward del Rosario

is a painter born in St. Louis, Missouri. He studied Painting and Printmaking at University of Kansas and Rhode Island School of Design. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

“For the past eight years I have been using painting to explore a narrative that deals with power struggles and the aftermath of a post post-colonial world. My paintings, oil on linen and painted on an easel, consist of a cast of characters staged on minimalist color backgrounds. The cast of characters is numerous but finite and the compositions and backgrounds vary from painting to painting. The compositions are snapshots of characters engaged in some ambiguous comedic or dramatic scene drawn from the narrative. The scenes often redefine the narrative, and over the years, have modified and transformed it into an organic meta-narrative.”—Edward del Rosario
