Erik Hesson is a self-taught artist who has been developing his style and mastering his craft for decades.
Claiming to have initially learned how to paint in a highly-cognitive dream state, his artistic journey has truly been an exploratory and experimental process throughout its many phases. For a vast majority of the time, variations of Abstract Expressionism were his style of choice; with some Geometric Abstraction and a few other styles like Impressionism being experimented with as well.
Feeling confident after a few years of developing his style and skill, which includes a unique texture and shading technique that introduces a new way of capturing light, he created an innovative new art style called Linear Perspectivism. A scene is represented from a single perspective, using basic geometric forms, dynamic texture and vibrant colors to create an idealized three-dimensional abstract composition.
With this new style, Erik is attempting to create a new visual language in art, one which uses the Classical Principle of Linear Perspective as the predominant construct of the composition/aesthetic, as opposed to being an underlying design element.
"What Cubism did to the Cube, Linear Perspectivism does to Linear Perspective," he says. Linear Perspectivism has three main influences: Kandinsky's Geometric Abstraction, Picasso's Cubism and the Classical Principles of Linear Perspective and Proportion.
Erik has since founded the art website UniqueModernArt.com in Jan 2022, and he is currently participating in multiple exhibits across the Tampa Bay area; including the Dali Dozen 2023 show at the Dali Museum.
Erik's writing career began in 2020 when he became a songwriter, and he has currently written 50 original songs, 4 Non-fiction books, including an autobiography. The books are currently published exclusively on Amazon and Kindle, and the titles are: (1) 'Unique Modern Art: The Story of Erik Hesson's Artistic Journey and Collection of Visual Works', (2) 'Master Mind: Elon Musk', (3) 'Master Mind: Edgar Cayce: A Real Universal Hero', and (4) 'Elon Musk vs. Bill Gates: A Rivalry For The Ages'.
