Artist Eric Matelski has made his place in the art community by painting live, curating, coordinating art events, and donating his time and artwork to a number of charities and non-profits. As a “live artist,” Eric has painted loose portraits of musicians and performers at hundreds of concerts and events, attracting an audience of his own, and completing paintings sometimes in just minutes.
Although painting live is what gained his local recognition, Eric also works–at a slower pace–in his home studio, painting and assembling a range of experimental works of art, and installations. Companies and individuals all over have commissioned Eric, to paint murals and create custom works.
In addition to his own art, Eric also curates artwork for a handful of local Denver eateries and other art establishments. In addition Eric currently serves on art boards for ArtReach a and Denver Chalk Art Festival. Eric produces a number of group art shows each year with his art production company Art Pimp. Eric’s main focus is not just his own art. Eric believes in art as a community and enjoys helping other artists get their voice.
In 2008 Eric was named by Denver one of the city’s 150 unsung heros for his work in the Denver art community. In 2010 Eric was awarded a MasterMind award from Westword. Learn more at ericmatelski.com.
