Eric Cremers

"I got fascinated by the variety of housing and living forms I saw all over the world. Once rooted in reality, my work is now solely the result of my imagination. I continue to explore new approaches to the theme of Habitats, while my colorful little shacks often serve as the building blocks of the whole."

Dutch Artist, Eric Cremers, b. 1953, embarked on a multifaceted artistic journey following the completion of his five-year teachers' education at the Art Academy. For 28 years, he dedicated himself to nurturing young minds as a high school art teacher before transitioning to a full-time artist in 2010.

Since embracing his role as a professional artist, Cremers has immersed himself in the exploration of a singular theme: Habitats. Within his artistic realm, he constructs vivid landscapes devoid of human presence yet teeming with traces of life. Through his work, he invites viewers to embark on a journey of discovery, where every corner reveals intricate details that hint at the existence of unseen inhabitants.

Driven by the challenge of achieving harmony in color palettes, spatial arrangements, textures, and materials, such as wood, branches, palm leaves, and cardboard, Cremers strives to evoke a sense of wonder and contemplation in those who engage with his art. With each creation, he endeavors to transport observers to a world where imagination knows no bounds, offering a sanctuary for exploration and introspection.
