By Erik Jones
Erik's works consist of sporadic paint strokes that drape highly realistic female figures, creating an elegant juxtaposition between the two very different styles. As you can imagine, Erik's works were enchanting to view when presented on canvases, but to experience his paintings on a much grander scale forces the viewer to reflect in ways that one can only dream about. This mural creates a futuristic illusion of traveling through another dimension where a beautiful woman awaits for you on the other side. It is definitely a transcendent experience, in addition to witnessing history in the making.
