Canadian artist, Erik Olson, may very well be our generation’s Pablo Picasso. Yeah, we said it. Olson’s more recent work is so reminiscent of Picasso’s cubism period that we couldn’t help but say it! Aesthetically, Olson has a style that is all his own, but air that surrounds his work reek of the same innovation that once wafted through the early cubic works of Braque and Picasso.

Both perplexing and comprehensive, Olson’s work appeals to the brain’s ability to piece things together even when they are in permanent disorder. Olson currently has these featured works on display at Douglas Udell Gallery. Titled, Architecture of the Face, the exhibit was recently extended to March 16th.
