Both artist’s work share an obtuse unearthly charm as a common language, and their work promises to have an energetic and productive conversation in their upcoming exhibition.
Great show up at FFDG in San Francisco right now. Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson spent a couple weeks on the beast coast cooking up some vibey abstractions for us and now they’re ready to be seen! Both artist’s works definitely play off each other really nicely, and if you’re out in SF, this one is not to be missed. See more from the show below.
Eric Shaw creates fractal-filled cosmic psychedelic drawings and paintings that takes both abstraction and figuration to strange, surreal new levels. We’ve actually had the pleasure of doing an in-depth interview with him on the B/D site last year, so it was great to catch up with him! Just a few days away ’til “Art Works Every Time,” and we can’t wait!
Eric Shaw doodles obsessively, delving into the space where all things psychedelic thrive. Utilizing gouache and ink, he seems to reference Hinduism, Mayan and Native American creation myths, and hippie subculture in his wildly disorienting patterns. Beautiful/Decay recently interviewed Eric about his customized t-shirt line, artistic inspirations, painting techniques, and more. Full interview and images after the jump!
