About the Artist
EON (the Enigma Of Newyork) is a painter who distills natural moments of transition and connectivity into artistic expression. His art is enabled by a rare cerebral condition that allows him to see life and paint in terms many layers. The dozens of layers of paint involved in each piece are true to life's both integrated and every changing nature. His Superscape style dissects subjects both in space and time, and reconstruct them using the entire pallet of colors. Just as natural light is the composite of each color in the rainbow, it is only by their juxtaposition before our eyes that we see the movements and colors in between. Ultimately, the effect is created not by the static painting itself, but by the interaction of the observer with the painting from a stationary focal point. The richness of the textures and colors come from his mixed-medium, bricolage technique the requires spray and acrylic. His background as both scientist and artist informs this perspective.
The process involves dozens of layers in order to achieve the dynamic textures that express differently depending on the surrounding space and lighting. He has trained at the Arts League of New York on 57th Street, The George Washington University, Georgetown University, Columbia University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
