Ed Gilliam is an Atlanta based folk artist who is most well-known for his whimsical paintings on ceramic chargers. Using the scraffito technique (Italian for “scratch”), Gilliam creates works that often combine human and animal imagery with snippets of poetry and prose. Always an artist at heart, Gilliam began making art full time at 60 years old, drawing inspiration from his time living in New York City from the 1950’s to the 1970’s, as well as folk art masters like Howard Finster.
