In my work, there has always been a driving force of social activism.
Eric Gold is an artist whose work explores shared consciousness in populations through the creation of art and community. He is based in Toronto and also works out of the US.
Gold developed a process of creating paintings from 100 small pieces. The evolution of his technique sparked the exploration of co-creating portraits. He began to facilitate community paintings as a means to engage people and elevate awareness.
Over the past several years, Gold has created paintings with thousands of people nationwide.
Eric Gold continues to work with communities as well as independently in the US and Canada.
