Eric Pina

Born in the 70s in Senegal, Pina successfully graduated in 2000 with a Diploma of plastic expression at Art school of Mulhouse, France. Pina has been the recipient of many awards and grants however the everyday moments which he captures in his drawings are his real drive. He feeds off the awkward encounters and idiosyncrasies of the people on the street around him.

There is an unsettling perspective in his works as figures float around the page and scale is manipulated. Pina uses colour to highlight figures fading others into the background. The sparse background of his work causes his subjects to pop out of the page as well developed characters.
