Mike Edwards

South African Artist

Mike spent many years teaching sculpture & print making in Bloemfontein & Pretoria, South Africa. He has travelled widely and draws and sketches his visits to places of interest, converting these collections of visual information into sculptures, paintings & prints. His sculpture reflects the African landscape, while his portraits in bronze give tangible and visual portrayals of his contemporaries, prominent people and children, of his time.

Mike Edwards the artist on his sculpture

Making 'art-objects' rather than descriptive 'image objects' that attempt the recreating of reality in three dimensions has
been my resolve, my interest and my overriding effort.

Abstract Sculpture by Mike Edwards

A selection of commissioned and private bronze, stainless steel and wood sculptures

South African sculptor Mike Edwards spent his formative years in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, in the Karoo and in the Transkei. The ruggedness of the coastal area, the desolate Karoo landscape and the rolling green hills of the Transkei made an indelible impact on him. The landscape, with all its differing forms, remains one of his chief areas of interest.
