An artist by temperament & training and a filmmaker by trade, Eric Oliver has never been one to settle on a single way of doing things or of seeing the world. In art, the ever-changing colors, objects, geographies, shapes, and shadows encountered during daily life generally serve as the impetus for his work while materials on hand and circumstances often provide parameters.
His work can serve as a study in the elegance of utility and how utility & chance often create abstraction in the physical world while bringing a bit of reality to that imagined.
Shortly after receiving a BFA in photography from Stanford University, Eric began working in motion picture and television production as an assistant director. He continues to enjoy working in film & television and as an artist & designer for clients from within the film industry and from without.
