Eric J. Franke
Eric J. Franke is a prolific Big Island artist, known for his stark photography of the Hawaiian landscapes as well as his emotive portraiture. Able to find something magical in seemingly mundane moments, his style combines muted but rich tones in isolated compositions, often leaving space for the viewer to exist with and in his scenes . His style draws upon his experiences growing up in Hawaii, and his love for beauty, adventure, mystery, discovery, and story.
Aside from the visual arts, Eric is a lifelong soccer player and longtime coach. In college he took an interest in the Hawaiian language and studies it to this day. He enjoys spending time at the beach as long as he doesn't have to sit still, singing along to the radio (look out Taylor Swift), and blonde jokes. He has four blonde sisters, five nephews, two nieces, and a couple of parents. He loves chocolate chip cookies, his favorite color is blue, and he's self diagnosed as "bacterially aware" (Germaphobe is such a dirty word).
