Ed Rust's Biography

Ed Rust - Go For Goal

Ed Rust is a Yorkshire-based British sculptor who constructs spindle-like bronzes which give a whimsical slant to sporting and other outdoor pursuits. Edís primary concern is to represent animated rather than static figures, and he achieves this by exploring the ideas of proportion, stretching and manipulating parts of the sculpture into extreme positions until they seem to be mid movement. Despite their exaggerated lines and humorous attitudes, these quirky figures touch people by tapping into the shared experience of sprinting down the wing or being pulled almost off your feet by an overenthusiastic dog.

Studied art at Batley Art College where he discovered new ideas and was influenced by some great artists.

A huge admirer of 20th century sculptor Barbara Hepworth, her modernist works have greatly influenced Edís style. His dynamic sculpture has been likened to the distinctive elongated figures of another great artist of the 20th century Alberto Giacometti.
