WORK
Erik's work is vibrant and colorful, expressing a heightened sense of realism captured in his female subjects, juxtaposed with confident mark making and nonrepresentational forms that could be said to mimic geometric high-end fashion. This effect is achieved by using multiple mediums such as watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper.
