Artist Eric Trich is not yet of legal drinking age, but he’s already impressed a slew of art fans and patrons. I just received word (via a press kit with a calligraphy-written address — nice) that his series of paintings, American Lucky Coins, is on display at the Oak Lawn Branch Library, starting tomorrow and continuing through September 4. Trich went to high school in Mesquite, then attended the Art Institute of Dallas, and is now a student at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. He’s local through and through. And yet perhaps his biggest fan is in Tokyo. Collector (and American Lucky Coins owner) Keiko Ichihara writes:
When I was introduced to the innovative work of Eric Trich, I could easily see in his canvasses the very essense of his art; it is all-American. A style that oscillates between being Neo-Expressionist and at times primitive with total liberty of his views and opinions about the world around him. A powerful young talent!
Not too shabby.
