Profile of Artist Edward Granger
If you came across Louisiana-born, New York-based artist Edward Granger, 26, standing next to one of his murals or installations you wouldn't know where to look first. His art, obsessively stenciled geometric patterns in pastels and neon, is a sharp contrast from a city obsessed with black. But that's not all that sets him apart. He's also hot. The gay, former swimsuit model has the smoldering eyes and effortless grin of a guy who'd break your heart in high school. And he's not afraid to use his looks and charm to advance his career.
