About Eric

Eric is known for his thought provoking content and for the mastery of his craft. The work provides a beautifully rendered visual that provokes the viewer and pulls them in for closer inspection. His paintings often deal with people and their relationships. The trials and adversities that they strive to overcome, exaggerated and blown out of proportion. His work gives a loose narrative of characters caught in a world their own. The imagery is quiet and dynamic often with a touch of melancholy and soft surrealism.
Eric is an artist based out of Columbus, Ohio. He received his BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design where he was honored with the Outstanding Senior Award upon graduation. His work continued to garner acclaim with the acceptance into such prestigious annual competitions as The Society of Illustrators NY and LA as well as Spectrum and others. He was the Artist Guest of Honor for ConGlomeration and was recently awarded the Jack Gaughan Award for Best Emerging Artist of 2009.

Currently Eric is focusing his efforts on personal paintings and upcoming gallery shows. He has shown or will be showing at the Opera Gallery (NY), Copro Nason Gallery (LA), LeBasse Projects (LA), Roq La Rue Gallery (Seattle), Ad Hoc Arts (NY), Gallery 1988 (LA), and many others.

pic a; evoking the triune nature of man, from the farthest depths, unto the diversity of his crafts.
pic b; certifing the burnings of ones soul from the roots, within the subconsious mind.
