Inspired by the beauty and eloquence of the human form, Edward Eyth spent decades refining his skills in figurative drawing while pursuing a successful design career.
Recently his creative energies have been dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of figurative sculpture & drawing. Recognition and praise for Eyth's figurative works
have been immediate and extensive. His high standards, sophistication of technique and mastery of anatomy and proportion are clearly evident in his art. Through the
course of his distinguished artistic career he has collaborated with such celebrated filmmakers as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. He has consulted
on projects with the Smithsonian Institution, Universal Studios, Paramount Studios, Columbia Pictures and for the Walt Disney and Jim Henson Companies.
In 1992 Eyth moved
to New York City, where he instructed a design course at the Fashion Institute of Technology. He has lectured at various colleges and educational institutions including Parson's
School of Design - New York, the School of Visual Arts - New York, UCLA, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh; for the Society of Illustrators, and the Puppetry Guild of Los Angeles.
While living in New York Eyth made frequent visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he studied old master paintings and sculptures, incessantly sketching the displayed
works of Carpeaux, Rodin, Veyrier, and Houdon along with collections of various ethnic works. Further research included the Louvre, the Musee Rodin and other prominent museums
of Europe. This immersion in the world of artistic masters reinforced Eyth's passion for figurative art and prompted his transition to the full time pursuit of drawing and
In May of 2008 Eyth's sculpture "Olympic Spirit" received the prestigious "Olympic Rings Award," having been selected from an international field of 2,400 sculptors
for inclusion in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Landscape Sculpture International Touring Exhibition. In August of 2008 Eyth held the unique distinction of being the only living
artist whose work was featured in the Pageant of the Masters program at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. He was the 2008 First Place Award winner in the US Olympic Committee
National Art Competition, and subsequently a finalist in the International Olympic Committee's 2008 Sports Art Competition. Eyth's sculptures are featured in select private
collections around the world and as part of the permanent collection of the American Sport Art Museum. He currently resides in Central California with his wife and two sons.
