A webshop filled with colourful prints
Launching today, EDDE www.eddeart.com, is a culmination of 15 months’ artistic work and preparation behind the scenes by Irish-Belgian duo Declan Kelly and Els Borghart. Using traditional hand-crafted art techniques combined with modern cutting-edge printing technology, EDDE offers premium quality art prints at accessible price points. Building on our motto “Art for you!” EDDE was born from the desire to bring art and pops of colour into peoples’ lives.
We would love to welcome you on our brand new website www.eddeart.com
Ooooh pssst… We have a present for the first 25 orders!
Els is an artist and a freelance curator. She loves travelling, she was born a bookworm, has a soft spot for healthy and sustainable lifestyle and cannot spend enough time with friends and family. In her art she likes to work with washes of vibrant colours, is fascinated by patterns and never gets bored of drawing and painting animals. Meticulous detail as well as spontaneous work are her thing.
Declan is an artist, teacher and curator. He too caught the travel bug! He is a social animal and an animal friend. He can also lose himself completely in playing table top games, enjoys long walks in nature and is forever tinkering and making things. In his art he has an endless fascination for structures, perspectives and architecture. The colours red and blue are his favourites and he loves to experiment.
EDDE represents quality and integrity. We are passionate about our art and our customers. Every image is hand painted and drawn with high quality materials. To reflect this process as best as possible in our prints, we work with the giclee reproduction print technology while printing on high quality archival paper. The result is a fine premium print with superb depth in colour that lasts a lifetime.
Els and Declan continuously travel the world, from backpacking in Mexico over road tripping in the USA to city tripping around the globe and island hopping in Europe. Often their journeys also take place closer to home, roaming beaches and forests, their home towns and the bustling cities in Belgium and Ireland. Their many adventures allow them to build a grand database of photographs and to gather numerous stories. This well of inspiration drives them to make colourful artworks. Each new adventure is the seed to a new collection of works.
Els and Declan often work together, from curating exhibitions, developing youth art workshops to programming arts festivals and sharing studio spaces. Tapping in and out of experimenting making art together, concepts and visuals surface. And so EDDE saw the light in January 2016. We can’t wait to see where this adventure will lead us!
