Erik Olson

Erik Olson-1-Design Crush


It looks like Canadian artist Erik Olson has found the intersection of cubism and expressionism, and I have to say I’d be happy to park myself there for awhile. I’m especially loving Olson’s New Portraits, full of thick paint and a deconstructed look that can make your eyeballs vibrate in your head.

    These are wonderful. I especially love the thick layers of paint that give the painting texture. Also, the eyes on all three of the above paintings are so emotive.
