Eric, who has Asperger’s syndrome, describes himself as a self-taught, fantasy artist and says that his work is semi-autobiographical.

About the exhibition

Much of the imagery and inspiration that can be seen in his paintings are memories of his time living close to the Amazon rainforest, in Brazil, where he grew up.

His work can be found in many private and public collections in Europe, South America and the United States.

“Ever since I was a child, I have always liked inventing my own imaginary world and then expressing these worlds through models, maps or drawings. It is from this basis that my art has developed, going through different phases. I now feel I am moving ever closer to finding my place in the real world.”
