Artist Eric Armusik met members of Devon Art Society via ZOOM the other day. He talked about his work, answered questions and demonstrated some of his techniques.
Eric Armusik lives in Hamburg, Pennsylvania. His first experiences with art were staring at the walls and ceilings at church on Sundays. The traditions and academic realism of Catholic religious paintings and artwork made a permanent impression that continues to influence his work today.
In 1991, Eric attended Pennsylvania State University, where he earned a B. F. A. in painting. In 1995 he received the Margaret Giffen Shoenfelder Memorial Scholarship for the Arts and finished his art history minor abroad for a semester in Todi, Italy.
During his art classes there he drew from original paintings, architecture and sculptures by the old masters such as Michaelangelo, Bernini, Caravaggio, Rubens and Donatello. The rare opportunity to study masterworks by Baroque painters Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi had a profound effect on the quality of his work and focused the inspiration he experienced as a child.
Eric has since won many awards and has been represented in galleries and museums in Europe and the USA.
