Mural Artist Uses Paint To “Trick-The-Eye”
The paintings included colorful Hummingbird, Scrub Jay, Robin, Mockingbird and other animals painted into ocean and local scenes that would transform the bare walls into something of beauty and inspiration.
The idea sprung from reinventing sterile/drab hospital walls into a new uplifting environment that the children ages 5 – 17 and staff would love.
“Trompe L'oeil artwork is like watching a magic trick each time you see it and it's always fun to see peoples enjoyment when they first view it.” Rik Erickson
Rik Erickson has ongoing relationships with local business and medical facilities because of his commitment to high quality levels of art that are both sensitive to the needs of the patients, as well as staff, administrators and visitors. Previous artwork includes an 112' long tropical ocean mural with flying pelicans, tropical waterfall and red exotic flowers.
