Eric is an abstract painter that focuses on the use of inks and acrylics. His pieces are nothing less than bold, colorful, and mesmerizing. With the use of water and various fluid mediums, his work has a fluid and sometimes 3-dimensional energy with endless layers and beautiful gradients.
Painting is my escape from the rest of the world. it's also how I communicate how I'm feeling towards certain events in my life or the world To be able to create art is a wonderful privilege I am thankful for every day. I love working with colors and gradients, the possibilities are endless. I find a certain satisfaction in a perfectly smooth gradient, even though it's usually, as you can see in my art, it's followed by a splatter of imperfection. That's just what life is and we as people are. a perfect amount of imperfections.
