Edwin Lester is a self taught artist from Philadelphia who has taken the ethnic art world by storm. His spiritual concept is unique and Edwin Lester's african-american art work will convey a message that is evident in every stroke. Edwin Lester doesn't necessarily consider himself a spiritual or concept artist, he has stated that he likes to paint images which are a part of his everyday life. God, love, simply living trying to be the best he can at what ever he is trying to accomplish that day. Edwin Lester is a man that loves what he does and can simply reflect on the joy of life. "I just love what I do and when I walk out into the world each day, there is so much to see, so much to paint. For tomorrow is not promised. So today I will say what I can, do as I must and paint what I can even if it's just one stroke."
I wake up to this portrait EVERY MORNING as it hangs facing me to give me motivation and inspiration in knowing that we all are gifts from God. Edwin Lester has captured the creation of Eve from Adam's rib in a miraculous way in which the hands of God pulling her out looks surreal! An awesome piece of art!
