Eric Skotnes is an American contemporary artist known for his award-winning colossal urban murals and paintings, interconnecting disparate styles into an aesthetically integrated whole. He elegantly blends his classical, figurative painting, inspired by Italian Masters, with a youthful graffiti background. This unique style results in juxtapositions of his street style with figural renderings of classical sculptures from antiquity. Based in Los Angeles, Eric Skotnes studied illustration and fine art at ArtCenter College of Design.
