Eric Yahnker employs elaborate metaphors and cultural commentaries in his monumental, irreverent charcoal and colored pencil drawings. Immediately appealing on their surfaces, Yahnker’s drawings convey deeper meanings to viewers who patiently engage with them. The artist begins his drawings as a series of words in a sketchbook, collaging ideas as much as images. The results are aggregations of witty, politically charged imagery.
Eric Yahnker is a contemporary artist born in 1976 in Torrance, California. His humorous, meticulously rendered graphite and colored pencil drawings and elaborate process pieces examine pop culture and politics. His jaw-dropping graphite and colored pencil drawings and other vivid works are sprinkled with absurdist humor and glimmers of the subconscious.

Eric Yahnker just opened a new show at The Hole in NYC, and he sent over a big selection of the work and installation he built in the big gallery space on Bowery. As a draftsman, humorist, and fine artist, there aren’t many artists as good as Yahnker.
Eric Yahnker has been the talk of the town, as some of our colleagues have been raving about the work of Eric Yahnker. We are into the work as well, and after seeing a few previews, Fecal Face made it out to the show and took some nice photos. We love the Lasagna can, Warhol a la 2011. The pizza piece, too, is priceless. We can see a lot of this work being popular with people…
