His art is fun and exciting to the eyes, reminding viewers that making art is fun and challenging them to explore the world as they did when they were kids.
Eric has a diverse art background. His interest in art started with photography and he spent hours in the darkroom learning how to artistically manipulate his images. With the rise of computers, Eric began creating digital artwork, specializing in Fractal Art. Developed in the mid-1980s, Fractal Art is a form of algorithmic art created by representing mathematical calculations as still images, animations and media.
