Edward Lightner
 

Born in California’s San Joaquin Valley in 1960, it is here that Edward Lightner became
fascinated with the vibrant interplay between color, line, shape and form. He became intrigued
early on with the expressive power of art; with the ability to convey views and ideas through a
visual format, and how that vision could and would be viewed by others.
 

Edward embarked on his formal artistic education at California State University Bakersfield,
where he earned his bachelor's degree. Edward furthered his artistic development by traveling
across Europe and then continuing his studies at the University of South Florida and New York
City, finally returning to California to complete his master's degree at California State University
Northridge. Edward's artistic philosophy was evolving over this time, remaining socially and
politically relevant, while recognizing the dual capacity of his work to also embrace the
aesthetics of beauty, pattern, and decoration. To this end, in recent years he has directed his
creative energy towards crafting numerous kaleidoscopic patterns, with all of these patterns
being derived from satellite photographs of underground atomic testing sites in the United States.
 

Beyond his role as an artist, Edward Lightner also has contributed to the Los Angeles art scene,
co-owning a gallery for a decade. Currently, he serves on the Board of Governors at Otis
College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, furthering his commitment to the arts. He has
exhibited from Los Angeles to New York, and internationally with exhibitions in Australia, Asia
and Europe.
 

Today, Edward resides and works in Pasadena, California.
