Mark Erickson was born in Southern California and completed his education in California, Germany and Italy. He completed his art education at the Academy of Art College and the Art Institute in San Francisco. Erickson has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. He has collectors in Germany, France, Japan, Italy and across the United States

Erickson concerns himself with transcending the picture plane, and in his newest series of paintings he plays with both flattening the surface and creating abstracted objects. They float behind his imaginary creations, enabling a world of depth in the work's hazy galaxy.

Mark's work has evolved steadily and contains a confidence and maturity gained only by dedication and talent. Sometimes the paintings have a more urban energy with whirring colors flying across a brightly lit metropolis. The shapes, so perfectly formed, propel the pigment off the surface of the canvas. Erickson, transforming the flat plane, breathes life and depth into his paintings and pulls the viewer into the experience. He does this by modulating color against color and form against form in such a way that you feel you can travel within the work.
