A longtime resident artist of the Hamptons, on the East End of Long Island, NY, Ed Haugevik has established a career as professional sculptor placing his work at numerous private and public sites throughout the country. He launched his career as a steel sculptor in the late 1970's, working from a Triceca loft, studying in NYC, and eventually showing in Soho galleries. As his work grew in size, he relocated to the Hamptons in 1983, building a larger studio in Sagaponack to accommodate the execution of these pieces. At the same time he became affiliated with the well known Elaine Benson gallery, in Bridgehampton, where his work was shown for the next 22 years. During this time his pieces were acquired by serious collectors, learning institutions and corporations. His minimalist expression, through the medium of corten, stainless and rolled steel has established a style that he continually gravitates towards in past and current creations.
