Striking Map Portraits by Ed Fairburn



Ed Fairburn is an illustration graduate whose work is mostly figurative. He paints, draws, and constructs using a flexible range of tangible media across a wide range of surfaces and contexts. By utilizing patchwork of roads, rivers, and trains, Ed creates outstanding portraits on printed maps. He colors street grids with meticulous ink, or pencil crosshatching, smoothly blending macroscopic terrain with human features. Fairburn has a great eye for finding patterns, exploring a wealth of ideas and concepts. Enjoy!
