A kaleidoscope is an optical instrument, typically a cylinder with mirrors containing loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. As the viewer looks into one end, light entering the other end creates a colorful pattern due to repeated reflections in the mirrors.
His personal and artistic drive started from a young age. Edward Granger grew up (like most of us) playing with color. He used crayons in coloring books at his grandmothers house, explored writing and would later take an interest in drawing and painting.
As Granger grew older, he started to observe his father building things and eventually aided him in the process of creating furniture. He learned to use his hands and acquired new skills with the help of his father. In high school he decided to begin studying architecture. He started to look into abstract illusionism and admired artists like Josef Albers (known for his square pieces and his theories about the internal ‘logic’ and deceptiveness of color).
“As an artist, your job is to create.”
Every artist dreams about work- ing on an off-limits canvas or collaborating with a well-known brand. Granger has already done both at the age of 27. First, on buildings buildings in New York and San Fransisco. He even collaborated on windows with Hermès and will be show- ing his work at Art Basel in Miami for the second year in a row. “As an artist, your job is to create.” Granger expressed. His personal mission as an artist? To be a positive influence to a world seemingly in shambles. “I want people to feel calm, relaxed and meditative.” (photos courtesy of Rick Day)
