Ed Handelman is a San Francisco painter and resides in North Beach in San Francisco, California.
“In 1956 I was in school at the California School of Fine Arts (SFAI) studying painting and realized I could be going to school in Italy. After dropping out of the San Francsico Art Institute I used the GI Bill to study at the University of Florence from 1957-1959. I’ve always found it hard to make statements about my art. It implies that there is some kind of philosophy behind my work; I just like painting.”
