Erik Sommer is a New York City-based contemporary artist. Focusing primarily on painting, his work is a conversation between age and beauty, capturing the passing of time through the deterioration of texture. His paintings reflect his urban environment, yet maintain a sense of both fragility and aggressiveness.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
