(pronounced Play knees iss), began experimenting with art in 2004, after visiting the Guggenheim Museum - NYC and seeing Vasily Kandinsky's, "Painting With White Border".
His formal education is in electrical engineering and has no art training. Erik is actively exhibiting in New York City. His artwork is a hybrid of different styles that include primitive, naive, and abstract expressionism. A mix of painting and drawing. The artist uses traditional & non-traditional methods to create his paintings. The end result is similar to a dream, where things get mixed together in strange ways.
The artist resides in New York.
