Eric  Waugh

 
  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.

Waugh's art draws us into an expressive vision of warmth 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 results 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 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.

On Dec. 1, 2001, Guiness World Records was at the unveiling of Waugh's largest creation, Hero, and certified it to be the world's largest painting created by one person. The 180-ft. by 230-ft. image is made up of 1,656 individually painted canvases. Waugh's intention is sell off every piece of the now-famous painting to collectors and donate the proceeds to 'Heartland' and the 'Starlight Children's Foundation'.

Waugh is permanently displayed at the American Express Building in New York, the Chrysler Building in Detroit, and the Hyatt Hotels International.
