Artist of the moment………Ericailcane

The third work from the bottom is a collaboration with artist Blu.

Ericailcane is a fantastic street artist from Belluno, Italy. His style of street art blends animal creatures with human features, clothing,  and situations. Ericailcane works as an illustrator, printmaker, animator of short video works, and an installation artist.

His father owned a printing press and the artist made his first print at the age of 8 years old.

The name now refers to a single artist, but the group began as a trio.

The artist finds inspiration from Victorian era children’s books illustrations.

Ericailcane attended college in Bologna, Italy.

The artist often works with street artist Blu creating very large multiple story murals. Below we view a large mural made by Blu and Ericailcane:

In this clip we view a time lapse of the artists at work painting some animals:

I enjoy the human qualities of the creatures depicted by Ericailcane. His work reminds of artist John Tenniel, the illustrator of the original Alice in Wonderland book. Tenniel was also great at drawing animals with human qualities.
