While studying the work of Paul Cezanne and his strict use of primary colors and their immediate derivatives, Ewan David Eason started his investigation into the interplay of contrasting colors which soon developed into exploring the ‘concept’ of contrasts. Throughout his studies at Bath Spa University he continued his investigation which manifest itself in sculptures, paintings, videos and prints.
Eason’s Mappa Mundi prints portray a contemporary visualization of today’s cities in juxtaposition to their medieval namesake. They depict a bird’s eye view of some of the most iconic topographical surfaces on our planet in shimmering gold. However these works are not just an artist representation but also the result of a painstaking process undertaken in order to document the landscape, whilst sympathetically following the ethos and history of cartography. High levels of accuracy and dedication are used in the construction of these prints, emphasizing their status as a method of art-as-documentation. The context of these works represents a snapshot of our ever-changing landscape that could potentially be completely re-written in as little as a decade.
This series of Eason's work has been well received in a number of prestigious institutions including the Barbican, Christie's as well the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London 5 times which led to a significant commission with a property development company in Kensington. His increasing media profile has also led to sales to clients in cities such as Auckland, Beirut, Beijing, Geneva, Los Angeles and New York, currently commissioned for Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant. He recently sold to the prince of Monaco and a Saudi Prince. Other collectors include Jordan and Marcelo Claure, the founder of Sprint mobile and actors and notable figures such as Ben Barnes.
