Oil Paintings of Abstract Faces by Erik Olson

Erik Olson
Erik Olson is a talented Canadian illustrator, painter and artist, who was born in Calgary in 1982. Erik graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver in 2007. In the first year he took a course on color theory and the way they taught it was through mixing oil paint. The talented young artist takes traditional portraiture to the next level with his use of rich colours and dynamic brushwork. His painting ‘The Skateboarder’ was included in the 2012 BP Portrait Award exhibition, which included a showing at the National Portrait Gallery in London, England.
