About Eric Haacht
Born in Plymouth in 1983, Eric is a self taught portrait painter. Eric Has been painting for ten years. The first portrait was painted in 2011 and since then has only painted portraits with the goal to explore the notion of ‘A concern with the immediacy and the artificialness of life (and death)’. In the last two years Eric has sold his work privately around the world including LA, New York, Melbourne, Hong Kong, London, Dublin and Milan.
In 2013 Eric’s work was shown in Harrods and in 2014 was part of an exhibition in Browns Fashion In London. At first hesitant to show his work publicly Eric is beginning to move into the gallery and in 2015 has plans to show his work In London and Hong kong with his first solo show planned for 2016.
Eric’s part of the current group show ‘Play’ at C.O.A Galerie (Canada) is Eric’s first involvement in an exhibition outside the UK.
