About Edward Maldonado
Hello, my name is Edward Maldonado. I was born in Newark, NJ from Puerto Rican parents. I have been told from an early age I had talent and was encouraged to get better. After the third grade I pursued to get better in drawing and so I did with the help of an art teacher. She introduced me to the world of art and followed my progress until the eight grade. In grammar school I assembled a portfolio and enrolled to Arts High School in Newark NJ. I was an art major graduate from Arts High in Newark NJ in 1986. While in Arts High School, I was trained to work with pencil drawings, ink sketches, water colors, pastels, charcoals, airbrushing, oils, acrylics, silk-screening, printing and photography at a professional level. This level of professionalism allowed me to pick and choose what I was more comfortable with and I did so. I managed to be proficient with painting in acrylics, airbrush and silk-screen. After high school I worked at a silk-screen shop for couple of years, I learned the trade inside and out. The salary part of my art career was very discouraging so I pursued going to college with another career in mind. Leaving the professional trade did not mean I stopped painting, I maintained an art lifestyle ever since. My joy of painting comes from my dedication of pursuing a better masterpiece and seeing people smile after they view my artwork when they admire it. I love it better when they appreciate my stuff. From my school lessons I learned to accept criticism as part of the learning process. I am definitely happy I was accepted to the Arts High School, coming from the inner city there were not too many good outlets to learn the arts in my local area, but I succeeded and I know every one else can too.
Ever since I began drawing I have been told I had a technical talent, so the details of the object are the focus of my paintings; textures, bright colors and reflections. The details motivate me to paint the subject and whenever I get the creative desire to paint I just go ahead and do it. From the study of realism paintings from other artists, that style has caught my interest a lot, so I studied it a bit more and began focusing my talent on realism style paintings. I work with acrylics and I honed the skill to maintain my mixed colors wet for long term in containers. This works well for when I want to touch up a piece of finished artwork in the future. Currently I have been painting water scenes, landscapes and still-life; all in a representational style. Throughout the years I managed to do a couple of pieces of artwork while working full-time on my other career.
