Peter Erickson is a painter and digital artist based in Philadelphia, PA

He likes to paint energetic, detailed and colorful images that are representative of natural and manufactured phenomenons. Peter stitches together found photographs, which he then overlays with painterly techniques to create complex digital collages. These dense abstract compositions explore a balance in contrasting colors, forms and dimension.
