Eron is a Rome-born artist and one of the best-known exponents of Italian graffiti and street art. Although academically trained at the city’s Scuola d’Arte di Urbino, Eron had been practicing graffiti since the age of fifteen. After several years of illegal activity, he developed a recognizable style that combined both his formal art background and love of unsanctioned street work.
Eron blends his paintings into the natural features of a wall or object to create seemingly fleeting figurative visions. His highly-evocative works border on optical illusions inspired by the perceptual phenomenon known as pareidolia (when the mind perceives a pattern where none actually exists). One of his most iconic artworks is a “trompe l’oeil” created on the ceiling of the church of San Martino in Rimini, Italy, titled Forever and ever ... for ever and ever (2010).
He has participated in many individual and collective shows throughout Italy and abroad. He has had solo shows at Museo d’Arte della Città di Ravenna; White Room Gallery, Capri; Binz & Krämer Gallery, Cologne; LC Gallery, Berlin; Ego Gallery, Lugano; Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Franceschi, Riccione; Mondo Bizzarro Gallery, Rome; and Arte Due Gallery, Milan, among others.
Eron’s work has been included in group shows at Italian Cultural Institute, New York; MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma; Museo d’Arte Moderna Bologna; Art Temporary Museum, Bari; Galerie Binz & Kramer, Koln; Museo d’Arte Moderna, El Cairo; and Chelsea Art Museum, New York.
