A former Premiership rugby player now Contemporary Artist

For over a decade Ed Williamson played professional rugby union in the English Premiership.  A move to France in 2014 allowed him to spend more time focusing on art and developing as an artist.  Since then, Ed has been showcasing his work in both individual and collective shows around the world, in exciting venues in Monaco, New York, Paris and Amsterdam. Pieces by Ed can be found across several galleries on a rotating basis throughout the year.

Ed Williamson

The son and nephew of professional artists I grew up surrounded by, and involved with art, but when the opportunity arose to fulfil my dream of playing rugby in the English Premiership it was a chance that I knew I could not turn down.  After many happy but injury filled years, painting provided an escape when I was unable to play, recovering from various operations.  Moving to South West France in 2014 gave me more time to focus on my passion for painting and since then I have exhibited my work around the world.  I am constantly evolving as an artist. My style is very contemporary but I love to mix in traditional techniques and subject matter.  I happily paint commissions, from portraits to animals, so if you're interested in having something special created you can contact me via this page. 

Cheers, Ed.
