Lifelike and beautifully detailed wildlife paintings by Eric Dull are on display from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through April 3 at Kendal at Oberlin’s Friends Gallery.
“As a society we have closed ourselves to the natural world. Through my drawings and paintings I attempt to remind and reintroduce that world into ours,” Dull said.
A 1997 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a bachelor of fine arts degree in illustration, he has worked as an illustrator, designer, and production artist for many Cleveland area companies. Working in diverse environments, he has become versed in a wide range of mediums and techniques both traditional and digital.
In 2007, Dull began focusing on his life-long love of nature and wildlife. Through online sales and commissions he soon had paintings in private collections in 29 states and five countries.
Three years later, he expanded his work to include his ideas on teaching, storytelling, illustration, and art into Broken Road Creative Studios in Grafton. The studio now encompasses a line of rubber art stamps, wildlife and nature paintings, and a variety of art classes.
In 2016, the gallery expanded to include offerings by other local artists and craftspeople.
