Waugh’s rise through the art world has been overwhelming. Born in Montreal in 1963, he is self-taught in every artistic aspect. He gained experience in the fields of graphic illustration and product design before turning to painting in 1988. Since then, his popularity among art connoisseurs has escalated to the point where he is represented in galleries in virtually every major city in North America. His paintings have been acquired by hundreds of major corporate and private collectors worldwide.
Energetic...graceful...dynamic and very positive. Perhaps this is the best way to describe the works of artist Eric Waugh.
Waugh’s art draws us into an expressive vision of warmth, positivity and hope, reflecting his positive perception and appreciation of life.
From clear and detailed images in Waugh’s mind, the speed and effectiveness by which he carries these thoughts through to fruition, makes the definitive result seem effortless.
Although all of Waugh’s works of acrylic and mixed media are one of a kind, they are however linked with a similar deep thematic vibrancy. His paintings are seemingly riveted together with the artists’ characteristic gold-dots, which act as points of union to harmonize the ethereal colors and images of each piece into a unified rhythmical composition.
Flowing from his natural artistic talent and through progressive experimentation with various methods and media, Waugh creates works of art in both the abstract and representational, the latter taking on the gracefully interpreted elements of the human structure, in an embracing ballet of form, texture and color.
