~~Graffiti artist, educator. Erik has been a professional artist for more that fifteen years and has had his work profiled in both local and national media outlets. He is recognized for his dynamically evolving styles and distinct spray can art technique. Erik rarely ventures away from spray cans as his primary medium allowing him to progress in the craft and to utilize spray paint for the majority of his projects. Working in compact scale surfaces is nontraditional for spray can art but this is where Erik is most comfortable. He strives to push the limits of spray paint use and excludes the use of stencils, tapes and rulers and enjoys the challenge of can control or cut work, terms used to describe free hand spraying techniques.
Erik has served communities throughout California in different capacities as an artist, educator, youth advocate, and social worker. Erik is an outreach consultant specializing in alternative marketing for youth services.
In 2011 he founded the Urbanists, urban art collective and is currently the Urbanists program coordinator.
