Ep.190 Edgar Arts - Ministry of Arts Podcast

Ep. 190

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Edgar Arts (@edgar._.arts)


Edgar Arts is a collaborative group of three (Luke Edgar, Matthew Huggett and Jay Goodwin), who are all both tattoo artists and fine artists, all of which is created under the same roof in north Essex.





Luke works freehand to create undeniably creative tattoos. This is only bolstered by his impressive work on metal. Never content to plateau, you can expect fresh perspectives when working with him on your tattoo or fine art project.





Heavily inspired by his print methods of working, Matt freely juggles tattooing and art in one hand whilst savouring his morning coffee in the other. His work explores rugged, worn textures contrasting with smooth or negative space.





Jay, despite being the least experienced tattoo artist in the studio, is an immense talent with oil and canvas. His photo realism painting technique renders his surreal concepts with great expertise. This confidence with the brush allows him to easily hone his tattoo art.
