Born in Houston, TX in 1979, Eric Breish spent his childhood in various cities in Texas and Oklahoma. Upon graduating high school, Breish joined the US Marine Corps and moved to San Diego, CA in 1997. After being honorably discharged as a decorated Sergeant in 2001, he attended Full Sail University in Florida where he earned an A.S. degree in Recording Arts, a B.S. degree in Entertainment Business and graduated Salutatorian in 2005.
Breish, known for his abstract paintings on metal that create holographic illusions, engages the viewer in mesmerizing planes of light and color that constantly shift before the eye. Using a combination of tools and unique methods, each mark on the metal is strategically placed to absorb and reflect light, creating the dimensional effect that separates Breish’s work from traditional abstract paintings. Aluminum, copper and steel are the substrates on which he primarily works, while layered transparent paints and varnishes create a glass-like finish that enhances depth, dimension and color. For fifteen years, Breish has apprenticed under renowned artist and innovator of metal art, Andreas Nottebohm.
Breish is currently represented by galleries in various cities around the U.S. His work has been placed in private and public collections both internationally and domestically.
