Ed Anderson came to the Gem State from the land of 10,000 lakes, Minnesota. His art, which is a modern take on Americana style art, showcases many of the iconic parts of Idaho and the West in general. Whether it's the Idaho salmon, a hefty elk or the stout buffalo, Anderson's work showcases the beauty and natural diversity of the Mountain West. He gets much of his inspiration from the outdoors, where he is usually found when he's not at his home in Boise. Anderson has described his works as a "controlled mess," which blur the lines between illustration, sketching, painting and abstract work. His works have even been licensed by Patagonia, Nissan and Simms. His newest exhibit, Americanism, debuts at October's First Thursday event in downtown Boise.
