Artist Bio

Eric Kasper was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1987. Receiving no formal art education, his techniques were all self-taught and developed by a desire to explore the depths of the medium. Eric works predominately in oils, yet often chooses to leave large sections of a piece only penciled in or severely under-painted. One month removed from high school saw the completion of his first oil painting, and after his first year of work he was accepted into a respected Phoenix art gallery. Two years later he was featured in a solo Upcoming Artists exhibit at the West Valley Art Museum.

In the time since his work has often been displayed in the Arts District galleries of Downtown Phoenix including The Monorchid Gallery which now represents him, and paintings of his were chosen to be album covers of highly regarded bands, Boys & Frogs and Emby Alexander. Eric Kasper still lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona
