 Eric Carlstrom
Now—January 14, 2024
Eric Carlstrom lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. His use of bright colors and heavy black in his paintings makes them visually vibrant and gives them a distinctive look. Eric paints mostly in acrylic, but he doesn't limit himself when it comes to expression in his art. He also works in clay, paper mache, plaster, and watercolor and makes assemblage sculptures and paints on found objects. He believes that art can be moving and inspirational but also can simply be fun and humorous.
