Eric Stewart

In his paintings and drawings, Eric Stewart (b. 1990) develops detailed renderings of an eclectic collection of source imagery that blur the line between fantasy and reality. Themes in his work range from art history to archival photographs of agricultural technology from the 1900s. His portrait work emphasizes subtle expressions of posture and mood.

Eric has published three comic books, Spinner on the Block, Bear in the Hood and No Turnin’ Back, the latter is “a story about a 12-year-old Hamilton, a troubled boy who has been abused by his mother and gets caught in a drug gang.” He worked out of Oasis studio in Philadelphia until 2014, when he joined Center for Creative Works.
