Folklore Activist - The Art of Ben Edge

Weird Walk


Folklore Activist - The Art of Ben Edge, published in 2024 by Weird Walk / 40-page A5 zine printed on high quality recycled stock


Ben Edge’s paintings capture a unique vision of British calendar customs and folklore. Although we have seen a resurgence of interest in these matters of late, when he began painting folk traditions in the last decade, Ben was an anomaly by virtue of placing such subjects at the centre of his practice.

Folklore Activist is a 40-page visual primer showcasing Ben’s artwork alongside an in-depth interview with Weird Walk, plus the print debut of his essential Folklore Activist Manifesto.
