A unique exhibition on the life of Ed Sheeran has opened this week in Ipswich to coincide with the Suffolk singer-songwriter playing four “coming home” concerts in the tow this August Bank Holiday weekend.
The nine-month exhibition is entitled “Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk” and features portraits by renowned artist Colin Davidson, photography by Mark Surridge and personal items portraying the journey from Ed’s school life in Suffolk to international stardom.
Many of these intimate works have never been seen before.
The exhibition, organised by Ipswich Borough Council and curated by Ed’s father, John, opened at Ipswich’s Christchurch Mansion on 20th August and runs until spring 2020.
“Ed’s story is well known but many pictures and sculptures in ‘Made in Suffolk’ are on show for the very first time. Thanks to the curation of Ed’s father, John, this is an intimate portrait of a singer-songwriter who revels in his roots and who is proud of both town and county.
