"Just a stick figure. It could be any one of us- young, old, male, female- and that's exactly the point. Haven't we all felt like this at one time or another in our lives? However, there is hope. Blue is the colour of the sea... the sky... and therefore to me, the colour of openness, opportunity and freedom. Our life is what we make it. It's never too late to start again."
Edward Monkton is the alter ego of Oxford University graduate, Giles Andreae. Giles began his artistic career as the creator of the successful cartoon character, Purple Ronnie. Sales of 80 million greeting cards and 5 million books have made him Britain's best-selling living poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.
His Edward Monkton persona reveals a deeper, more philosophical approach to life and packs a much greater emotional impact.
Monkton's work is as simple as it is profound-as philosophical as it is decorative. He takes on the big subjects that have fascinated artists and writers through the centuries...love, happiness, truth, beauty, the struggle of the soul to create meaning out of life, and gives them his own unique twist. Wry humor, resonant, evocative wording and a bold, graphic visual style are the hallmarks of this wistful, playful artist/poet.
