Eric Gordon’s Steady Now at evo
STEADY BY ERIC GORDON AND VOLCOM
By Chris Shalbot, Seattle, WA: For the month of December, evo in Seattle is featuring Steady, an art installation by Volcom Featured Artist, Eric Gordon. Eric designed and painted the South Wall Project mural last spring at evo. If you are interested in purchasing a piece from Eric, please stop by evo in Seattle or give us a call at 206.973.4470.
About Eric’s “Steady” Exhibit:
After painting a mural on evo’s South Wall back in April 2013, Eric returns to Seattle bringing a unique combination of styles in the form of latex acrylic and spray paint topped with heavy black enamel on wood panels. A geometric installation of wood sculpture and collage will add dimension to his series of stacked boxes, fluid designs and entwined bird themed paintings. A dedicated craftsman, Eric has been with the Volcom family for almost four years, creating murals, graphic designs and custom furniture along the way. evo is extremely proud to be a part of Eric’s first solo exhibit entitled “Steady”, a nod to his perseverance and patience as a working artist.

About Eric Gordon:
Growing up in southern California, Eric Gordon was drawn to surf and skate culture by the t-shirt graphics and sticker designs he saw plastered on boards and signs near the beach. After being given his first set of markers by his Grandpa Jack he immediately began to mimic those sticker designs in notebooks and on construction paper. Later, he discovered the bright colors and free flowing style of graffiti, which led to his first experimental paintings under a bridge by his house.
After a life-changing tour of Europe in 2002, Eric began to take his work to canvas and wood panel, using carpentry skills his father had taught him in his youth. He has always possessed a DIY attitude, silk-screening his own stickers, shirts and prints, creating zines and building almost every canvas he paints on. Eric approaches his work with a freedom that allows him to continuously develop his style and technique. Always learning, always growing, always striving to be a step above, he aims to create skillfully crafted pieces that provoke thought and imagination.
