Inspired by his writing projects, Edward Vilga also creates visual art.
After a sold out show of his visual art in NYC, an 8 page magazine profile, a short documentary portrait by An Films, and a nomination by GLAAD as Best Emerging Artist, in April 2010 Vilga was honored by the KiptonART Foundation for a studio event.
In October of 2010, the Antebellum Gallery in Los Angeles (“The only fetish gallery in America, perhaps the world”) exhibited his SYMMETRY installation which explored obsession and voyeurism.
In 2012, his artwork was featured in the New York Times’ GREAT HOME section.
From January through March 2013, his art was on display at the Cavallo Point Gallery.
Vilga’s painting/performance piece was the finale of the Duo Multicultural Art Center’s Holiday Happening where he created a canvas in real time. A video documenting this event can be seen below
