I love the artwork of Eric Waugh. As an artist, his unique creativity is truly astounding. As an artwork, these pieces create a lively and colorful focal point.

A Montreal native (now residing in Austin, Texas), Eric Waugh’s works have an unmistakable charm, flow, and appeal through the use of shapes, lines, and vibrant colors that are distinctly Eric Waugh.

Plus, no matter what he’s painting, all Eric Waugh’s artworks exude an undeniable sense of fun.

Waugh’s artistic themes embrace the excitement and energy of urban life.

Eric Waugh Early Career

Eric Waugh is a self-taught artist. He started out in graphic illustration and product design before discovering his love of painting 1988. 30 years later, Eric Waugh can boast to having sold over 45,000 original works during his career.  That makes him one of North America’s most recognizable and collected artists.

And, looking at his paintings, you can probably understand why.

With his masterful use of vibrant colors, rich textures, and lively subject matter, Waugh’s fun yet sophisticated art celebrates life.

The Musical Influence on Eric Waugh’s Art

Eric Waugh has taken his love of Art & his love of music and has merged them on canvas and off.  Aside from the obvious musical influence in many of is artworks, Waugh has painted live at many large musical events. During these events, Waugh lets himself become inspired by live music, and creates original works of art right before audiences’ eyes.

This love of music is evident in many of his pieces as well.

Although I think I see a small hint at what Waugh’s own personal preference in music might be.  If I was to judge solely by his painting, I would say that his taste in music leans towards Jazz. But that’s just a guess. Perhaps I am completely wrong about that….

Who knows.  Maybe I’m right about his taste in music.  Maybe I’m wrong.  Could go either way, really.

Waugh’s musically inspired artistry delights both art and music lovers alike.

Erich Waugh as the Whole Artist

Although his love of music is evident, Eric Waugh certainly doesn’t limit himself to that one theme. Waugh’s artistic eye captures the wide (and sometimes wild) energy of urban life, including (of course) music, romance, and even pets.

His dog pop art pieces (or – as I refer to them – PuP Art Pieces) have become incredibly popular among art collectors, and dog-lovers.

In general, you can tell that Waugh’s art reflect his own passions for life and the world around him.

Waugh’s charitable efforts have helped raise over $1,000,000 for worthy causes.

Below is just a small sampling of his most beloved art pieces.

Waugh’s art reveals his own positive and enthusiastic outlook.

Art as a Reflection of the Artist

If Art reflects the Artist’s personality, Waugh looks like he would be a fun, energetic, passionate person to be around… which is not a bad way to be thought of.

And, if I can use his own art to reflect how I feel about his art… well, somehow, that feels appropriate.
