Eric Armusik, (b. 1973) paints classical figurative art that reflects the spirit and passionate storytelling of the old masters. His paintings are a declaration to the dramatic power of representational art. The origin of his inspiration does not lie in academia, but rather his childhood, surrounded by the vivid paintings he saw in Gothic cathedrals as a child. Eric received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from Pennsylvania State University and a minor in an art history. He is recognized by the Art Renewal Center as an Associate Living Master. Currently, he’s an Artist Ambassador for Jerry’s Artarama and regularly demos and reviews their art materials.

Eric's paintings are in numerous collections around the world and have been exhibited in places like the Salmagundi Art Club and the National Arts Club in New York. His paintings have appeared in The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, American Art Collector and Fine Art Conniosseur to name a few.

Associate Living Master
Jan 2016
Art Renewal Center

The ARC defines a "living master" as one who has the rare talent, experience and expertise to create great humanistic works of art that are seemingly executed with effortless perfection. One who has been trained under the rigorous academic principles of Realism, and mastered every parameter and nuance of great painting or sculpture. Some have been fortunate enough to have trained as an apprentice to a master, or study at an atelier or school outside of today's colleges and Universities that have abandoned centuries of proven artistic principles and values.

Eric Armusik is an outstanding classical oil painter as well as an experienced oil painting tutor and teacher. Years ago, my daughter, her boy friend and I fortunately had a very good and very successful oil painting classes with him at his home. He did a very good job in his oil painting teaching program and we did benefit a lot from his patient demonstration with all the details. He is a fantastic oil painting artist and trustworthy skillful oil painting teacher so that it really worth for joining any of his programs. I highly recommend Eric Armusik to any of potential students for enriching their individual oil painting career.
