St. Petersburg, Fl. – Erik Hesson, an Artist and Oil Painter from St Petersburg and the Founder of UniqueModernArt.com, has invented a new art style called Linear Perspectivism and is showing his collection publicly for the first time in history. His work will be on display at the 4 Gats Gallery in St Pete located at 521 27th St S in St. Pete for the Second Saturday Art Walk on Jan 14th, 2023. For some history on Erik Hesson’s artistic journey and the creation of Linear Perspectivism, we can refer to his published biography, Unique Modern Art, which is currently published on Amazon and Kindle. Until now, the current collection can be viewed on Erik’s social media pages and website, UniqueModernArt.com.
As stated in his biography, Erik Hesson is a self-taught artist and writer who has been developing his style and mastering his craft for decades.
Claiming to have initially learned how to paint in a highly-cognitive dream state, his artistic journey has truly been an exploratory and experimental process throughout its many phases. For a vast majority of the time, variations of Abstract Expressionism were his style of choice; with some Geometric Abstraction and a few other styles like Impressionism being experimented with as well.
Feeling confident after a few years of developing his style and skill, which includes a unique texture and shading technique that introduces a new way of capturing light, he created an innovative new art style called Linear Perspectivism. A scene is represented from a single perspective, using basic geometric forms, dynamic texture and vibrant colors to create an idealized three-dimensional abstract composition.
With this new style, Erik is attempting to create a new visual language in art, one which uses the Classical Principle of Linear Perspective as the predominant construct of the composition/aesthetic, as opposed to being an underlying design element.
“What Cubism did to the Cube, Linear Perspectivism does to Linear Perspective,” he says. Linear Perspectivism has three main influences: Kandinsky’s Geometric Abstraction, Picasso’s Cubism and the Classical Principles of Linear Perspective and Proportion.
Erik has been exhibiting a few works of Linear Perspectivism at his Solo Exhibit at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida since Nov 2022 where he is currently scheduled to exhibit every Thursday, Saturday, & Sunday from 1-4pm on the patio near the Main Entrance.
