Edgar’s style is characterized by flowing lines, subtle colours and a certain casual directness. As a true impressionist, Edgar likes to work by direct observation on the spot. For his portraiture no photography is used; his true-to-life portraits are the result of modelling sessions.
Much of his work is dedicated to capturing musicians and dancers during concerts, performances, rehearsals and jam sessions. By his loose way of drawing and painting, Edgar is able to suggest the freedom of movement and express the character of the music and dance.
