Eric N. Fausnacht is a Bucks County, Pennsylvania artist who paints portraits of domestic fowl in a contemporary/pop/baroque style. Fausnacht takes cues from portrait styles of Warhol, Frances Bacon, Jeff Koons, Matisse, Chuck Close, Kehinde Wiley, and the schools of photo realism and historic turn of the century animal portraiture. His subject matter of domestic fowl shows strength, beauty and regal splendor in a classic portrait style.
The subject matter is a stylized portrait of chickens and roosters, showing a complication and beauty that makes each image forceful and strong, as well as, light and elegant. Bringing out the beauty and strength of character in these images shows a juxtaposition of the common chicken or rooster as elevated elegance.
After receiving a BSE in Art Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania, he continued his education at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. Eric is also the founder and partner in Eric and Christopher hand-silkscreened pillows and totes which are sold in over 500 stores nationally and in Canada, Australia, Taiwan, and many other countries.
Eric is also collected by the family of Jeff Koons and Machaela Majoun. His work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia.
