The Art Of EDRW - Native Flavor

EDRW, who goes by the name of Eda is a Japan based illustrator with a truly colorful, poppy style that caught our attention thanks to the reoccurring theme we noticed with his entire body of work. Now artists tend to formulate their styles by drawing from various inspirations, be it comic books, film, anime, cultural cues and other sources.

What's really damn cool about Eda's work is that he chose to dig even deeper than a love of American culture, honing in on rich Native American history and their colorful, pattern heavy folk art as his source of inspiration. The result is a really unique hybrid of east meets west, with some truly striking designs that showcase his self proclaimed Native-Amerophile status. Love it when artists go against the flow and blaze their own unique path. Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
