Edward Rogers was born in Wisbech and educated in Ely. His early work was mainly portraits and landscapes but in the late 1940s he began to produce coloured geometric abstract pictures and cut-metal sculptures. During the Second World War he served in the Royal Air Force, and travelled extensively in Europe, India and Egypt. He exhibited at Drian Galleries where he had a solo show in 1966 and a solo show at Vincintoria Art Gallery, Brighton in 1968. BBC Southern Television made a film about his work and this is now in the Warsaw National Museum, Poland. Belgrave Gallery and Abbott and Holder have also exhibited work by Edward Rogers.
