Ed Bechervaise (Unwell Bunny), is an artist and creative based in Melbourne Australia. Ed describes his artistic philosophy and practice as ‘exploring the popular subconscious’. A deconstruction of lived moments and experiences that are mental snapshots re interpreted through his work.
His artistic career began in the early days of 90’s graffiti, in his home town of Adelaide. After some early studio arts, graphic and conceptual study at Uni SA and RMIT, Ed began following Melbourne street art and quickly began to produce new work that was largely figurative and character based, producing his first solo exhibition 2006.
Ed then travelled to Europe and lived in Amsterdam with artists such as D*Face, and pop graffiti artist Tilt, gaining mentorship and a better understanding of the International urban art scene.
In 2015 Ed had his first international solo show at Galerie LaCroix in Paris, which saw his aesthetic turn from raw aerosol expressionism to graphic, neo cubist style influenced largely by European painters. He received mentorship from the likes of Rime and other American graffiti artists turned contemporary artists, spending time in New York, LA, San Fransisco and Canada, furthering an interest in abstraction and emotive deconstruction of elements, which has continued to curve his practice.
Ed was included in Metro gallery’s ‘International street art exhibition’ with the likes of ELK, Rone, D*Face, Blek le Rat, and Faile. He is currently represented artistically by Backwoods gallery Melbourne and Galerie LaCroix in Paris.
