Playfully macabre and fiercely humorous, Eric Beltz’s hypnotically detailed drawings recast stories and characters from colonial American history in a grayscale psychedelia. His current series “American Visions” combines quotes from the Old Testament, Revolutionary era texts, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Medieval herbals as well as other sources with narrative imagery to present historical data as mystical origin myth. Beltz is represented by Acuña-Hansen Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.

He received his MFA in 2004 from UC Santa Barbara. He has exhibited in the Museum of Art and Design in NY, Morgan Lehman Gallery in NY, Texas Contemporary in Houston TX.
