  • Erich J. Moffitt is an American painter, born in 1982, in the Southern United States. 

    From age three onward, he traveled Europe with his family and spent his formative childhood years as an expatriate in the heart of Austria, where he learned to embrace multicultural influences from either side of the Atlantic and nurtured what would become a lifelong passion for art. 

    Having been simultaneously exposed to a wealth of literary, musical and artistic history, as well as the dawn of the internet and the information age, his work chronicles an effort to marry the rich cultural legacies of Old World Europe and 21st century America. His work often re-imagines classical themes from legend and myth via contemporary subject matter, frequently in a narrative style. His paintings are fables, featuring totemic animal archetypes and talismanic objects. 

    After returning to the United States, he received his Bachelor of the Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2007. He currently lives and works in Charlotte, NC.
