About Eric Formato

Labels are hard. We use them incessantly, but I simply ran into a roadblock. I'm not just a photographer. I'm not just an artist. I'm not just one thing period, so a term that I've found that encapsulates all of my work is: Digital Visualist - Someone who has tendencies towards visual beauty and creates such things that rely on light for expression in the digital realm.

I create multiple types digital visual media such as photography, video, timelapses, graphics, aerials, among many other Formats. My biggest asset is my creativity and innovation to be able to take someone's idea and breath creative visual life into the idea.

With my work, I hope to expand and enhance the perspective of other people, and create new realms of possibility for the things that they wish to see done visually. As far as I'm concerned, Everything is Possible.

About Lindsey Bates

Chicago is the foundation of my artistic career. Here is where I learned about graffiti, Picasso, Frida, Abstract, Sculptures, Masks, Medial Ages, Installations, movies in the park, and music festivals. Oh such more I can mention about the artistic culture of this world class city. The inspiration is in abundance here. That abundance has lead to being invited to display at Citi Bank Black History Lunch in, Just Jackie Webseries, South Side Community Art Center Community Art, Elephant Room Gallery, Marwen Institute, Bridgeport Art Center, Adler School of Psychology, MurphyHill Gallery among others. I also exhibited at the DuSable 35th annual Art Festival where I received a First Place Award in Fine Art. Recently I had the honor to exhibit work with the Museum of Science and Industry, as well as a pop-up vending booth with Navy Pier for their Celebrate Africa 2016.
