Erik Olson
Canadian, b. 1982
Follow

Erik Olson creates paintings with a distinct visual language. His works are recognized for their fragmented combination of figurative and abstract elements and bold application of color. Often developing from the artist’s response to a singular field of color, Olson’s paintings further evolve through the addition of brushstrokes, layout, and subject matter.

While Olson explores a variety of content, portraiture and the human figure continue to be the central focus of his practice. People familiar to the artist make up the subjects of his deeply personal works. Influenced by master painters Lucien Freud and Henri Matisse among others, Olson’s portraits capture both the unique physical characteristics and emotional qualities of his subjects.
