This episode of Forging Flame features Joey Edwards—a multi-medium dark-artist residing in the Portland Oregon area. Joey makes weird and wonderful things! From wire frame sculptures to award winning photo-realistic pumpkin carvings, to video, painting, and mixed media visual art—Joey's work clearly shows his affinity for all things spooky and dark, but with an air of absolute delight and joy. Think Tim Burton meets Jim Carrey.
Our conversation covers how Joey started creating as a child (which later evolved into his niche of creepy wire frame sculptures), his process for creating his pumpkin carvings with impeccable detail, as well as some of the struggles of being an artist in today's world.
Nowadays Joey is keeping busy with pumpkin carving and broadcasting his process on his Twitch channel (https://www.twitch.tv/Jo3y3dwards). You can check out all of Joey Edwards' work at his website Edwards Art + Design (https://www.edwardsartanddesign.com/), as well as his Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/jo3y3dwards/).
