Emotional Presence

His editorial illustration speaks volume with dramatic detail in his art. Eric Fortune paints with elongated body, harsh lighting that presents exaggerated detail in every wrinkle mixed with soften textures. Every image is dominant as the subject strikes the canvas like an exclamation, leaving the viewer with an emotional impact, questioning the story behind the illustration.

Eric Fortune graduated with a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design with an Outstanding Senior Award, as well as numerous awards which honors his talent in his field. This medium is acrylic on watercolor paper. You could view his work at the next group exhibition "Go East" at LeBasse Projects in New York, November 5-8, 2009.
