More Information

The ideas of early Romanticism, the Picturesque movement and antiquarian representations of topography and architecture underpin his approach to image making. He has a particular interest in the eccentric, uncanny and overlooked – lost country houses and ruins provide a constant source of inspiration. 

For Sheer Folly – Fanciful Buildings of Britain, Kluz will take inspiration from follies across Britain, including those of the Bretton Estate, to create a range of original two and three-dimensional works and limited edition prints.
 
As a designer and illustrator, Ed has received commissions from the V&A, Faber, Folio Society, John Murray publishers, Little Toller Books and St Jude's fabrics. Ed was born in 1980 and grew up in Swaledale, North Yorkshire. He studied fine art at the Winchester School of Art and now lives and works in East Sussex.
