Sunday Spotlight - Visual Artist: Eric Hurtgen

Today's Sunday Spotlight is an artist/designer by the name of Eric Hurtgen. Below you will find his bio from his portfolio and a sampling of his work! What first intrigued me about Eric's work was his use of color and his balance between art and design. His use of typography in his design pieces is so precise and articulate. His artwork can be busy or it can be simple, but there's a marriage of purpose and disposability about it. Chances are highly likely that you've seen some of his artwork floating around Tumblr.

"Eric Hurtgen is an artist and designer who lives and works in Charlotte, NC with his wife Amanda. Eric is a founding member of the Adah Design Collective with designer David Stanfield and is a contributer to the music and typography blog, Rock That Font. As an artist, his artwork has been featured in galleries across the Southeastern U.S."

The last piece is definitely my very favorite. I'd love to have a large print of that to hang in our home!
