Eriksdun: with a flamboyant technique of carefully applied swatches in bright colors, this German painter renders cities, figures and horses with very similar dynamics, ...and occasionally interesting forms.

Eriksdun, the German expressionist, has a solo showing. His most winning works own a Medieval gorgeousness and naivety, with storybook towers and bridges, often menaced by violent skies, or unfriendly fauna and a general quality of fierce colors and exploding forms.
