Eric Yahnker

After graduating from CalArts’ famed Character Animation Program, Eric Yahnker worked on projects including South Park, MADtv, and Seinfeld, as well as a host of hand-drawn, animated commercials. Describing his work as “long-form, visual, comedic poetry” and “glorified political cartooning,” the artist continues to use his unique background to create heroically-scaled installations, most often anchored by wall-sized, photorealistic drawings utilizing charcoal, graphite and colored pencils. Leaning heavily on pop-culture imagery combined with cinematic, political and historic references in order to magnify broader social truths, Yahnker was described by the New York Times’ Ken Johnson as “an exceptionally imaginative satirist [who] is also an ambitious, prolific and technically impressive draftsman.” Yahnker has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe.
