Erik Ebeling is from Overland Park, Kansas. He studied at the Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute of Art in Florence, Italy, and graduated in 2005 from Drake University with a BFA in graphic design and a concentration in painting. After working as a senior graphic designer for Disney Interactive for several years, he shifted his attention back to sculpture, his lifelong interest.
The human form is the main focus; inspired by the early masters, the goal is attempt to achieve an effect that is simultaneously ancient and modern; fragmented like the classical marbles, while still contemporary, with gestural textures and modern materials.
He now lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
