Edgeworth Johnstone is a writer, actor, film maker, artist and musician from Muswell Hill, London, UK. He is not a poet.
He is the creator of Edgey Teddies. He makes cosplay masks, music, films, paintings, clothes, drawings, and block prints.
He has released four solo studio albums: at Ranscombe Studios, August, Rochester, and Star Hill, as well as several home recorded demo albums.
In 2020, Edgeworth wrote, directed and starred in his first feature length production Top of the Pap.
Old bands: Elbow Sisters, 2 out of 3 rule.
‘I write songs by pretty randomly gripping the guitar in certain places, and singing abstract sounds that later morph into words. My visual art is much the same: abstract marks becoming figurative, with very little conscious thought, and nothing pre-planned or intended.’
Edgeworth has recently played at The Hope & Anchor, and The Islington venues in North London, with Emma Pugmire on drums. Emma and Edgeworth also constitute the Black Ivory Printmaking Club and practice OMH Stuckism with The Other Muswell Hill Stuckists.
Edgeworth has a podcast called Edgeworth podcast and keeps a video diary. He is the founder of The Aesphonly Society.
About Heckel’s Horse:
Since winter 2013, Billy Childish and Edgeworth have been making collaborative paintings together, at Billy’s studio in Chatham Dockyards. The partnership’s been called Heckels Horse. So far, writing in December 2019, Heckels Horse has made over 100 oil paintings. The vast majority are either 6ft x 5ft, or 6ft x 4ft, on deep edge linen canvas. Heckels Horse has itself collaborated with Harry Adams on a painting, after Larionov, called The Turk. Heckels Horse has been in three group shows: one in Pushkin House, another at Sun Pier House, and another in Russia. No solo shows.
Confusingly, in 2014, an art group was formed that included Billy Childish and Edgeworth, amongst others, that was also called Heckels Horse. This Heckels Horse has nothing to do with the Heckels Horse that is the partnership between Billy and Edgeworth.
