Daniel Edwards

“Daniel Edwards is an American sculptor; Born: La Porte, Indiana, 1965. His pieces address celebrity and popular culture in ways that have often stirred controversy. The release of the pieces is generally accompanied by press releases. His works include a sculpture of the disembodied head of Ted Williams, a life-sized statue of Britney Spears giving birth while nude on her hands and knees on a bearskin rug, a Presidential bust of Senator Hillary Clinton, and a 25 foot bust of Fidel Castro. ” - Wikipedia 2008
Edwards’ artwork has been reviewed by the New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Miami Herald, The Los Angles Times, and amongst many other articles nationally and around the world. Often vilified for his use of celebrity, Daniel’s artwork has also been seen as prophetic and constant in its ability to humanize social issues the media and public have trouble addressing.
