Ed Fraga profile
Ed Fraga is a Detroit based artist whose work explores social, cultural and religious themes using various media.  His work is usually concept-driven and involves exhaustive personal investigation into the subjects or themes.  He is primarily a figurative painter, but often seeks alternative methods and forms to present ideas.  From 2007 - 2010, a series of works on paper and installation books explored two poems from Songs of Innocence and of Experience by William Blake.  Other works from Art History have informed Ed's paintings.  He is drawn to work from the past, especially the medieval period, for stylistic and conceptual reasons.  In 2011, he was awarded an Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Fellowship and in 2009 a Kresge Fellowship.  He is a recipient of an Awards in the Visual Arts 8, an Arts Midwest National Endowment for the Arts, and a Bellagio Center Rockefeller Foundation residency.  His paintings and drawings are in the public collections of The Detroit Institute of Arts, Cranbrook Art Museum, The Flint Institute of Arts, and The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
