COLLECTIVeLY WE ARE SURROUNDED BY A BEAUTIFULLY ORGANIC WORLD THAT IS THE BASIS FOR ALL WE KNOW AND ALL WE ARE. FROM THE SMALLEST MOLECULE TO THE VAST SOLAR SYSTEM WE ARE INVOLVED IN THIS COSMIC DANCE ON A DAILY BASIS. THE ENVIRONMENT AROUND US INTRIGUES, EXCITES AND ELEVATES THE ART I PRODUCE. PERFECTION IS FOUND IN THE HARMONY AND BALANCE THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH NATURE. THE LAWS OF THE NATURAL WORLD CONTROL AND INFLUENCE MY ART. A LEAF IS PERFECT IN ITS COMPOSITION, FUNCTIONALITY AND Structurally AS IS THE FORM OF A DOLPHIN GLIDING THROUGH THE OCEAN. I LOOK TO THESE HARMONIES AND RELATIONSHIPS AS A WAY TO UNDERSTAND LIGHT, COLOR, SHADING, TEXTURE AND COMPOSITION IN MY ARTWORK. BY UNDERSTANDING THE GUIDELINES AND RULES OF NATURE, ONLY THEN, CAN YOU BREAK THESE RULES AND CREATE A NEW WORLD.   -E.O.N 75


~ARTIST BIO~


MAX EHRMAN AKA E.O.N.75 (EXTERMINATION OF NORMALITY) BORN 1975, IN THE SUNNY LITTLE BEACH TOWN OF NAPLES FLORIDA, FOUND THE WORLD OF ART IN HIS EARLY TWENTIES WHEN HE WAS LIVING IN GAINESVILLE FLORIDA WHILE ATTENDING THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. HAVING NEVER SEEN GRAFFITI ART IN HIS LIFE HE HAD NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE CULUTRE WAS OR EVEN WHAT THE MEDIUM OF SPRAY PAINT WAS OR WHAT THE CULTURE WAS ABOUT. 
ONE DAY A MURAL WAS PRODUCED ON A PUBLIC ART WALL IN GAINESVILLE. THIS EVENT CHANGED THE COARSE OF HIS LIFE AND CAREER. THREE GERMAN MURALISTS DID A MEMORIAL WALL TO A CHILD THAT DIED TRAGICALLY AT A YOUNG AGE. CONCEPTUALLY THE MURAL WAS BEYOND ANYTHING HE HAD EVER SEEN. THE LAYOUT, DESIGN, EXECUTION AND COLOR BALANCE WAS INCREDIBLE. THE NEXT DAY HE WENT TO HIS LOCAL PAIINT STORE, BOUGHT SPRAY PAINT AND WENT TO THE WALL, AND HASN’T STOPPED PAINTING EVER SINCE.
SINCE THAT FIRST CHANCE ENCOUNTER MAX HAS EXCELLED AT THE ART FORM. HE MOVED TO EUROPE IN THE FALL OF 2001 AND STUDIED ARCHITECTURE AT THE DESSAU INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE WHERE HE RECEIVED HIS MASTERS. WHILE IN EUROPE HE PAINTED IN SIX COUNTRIES AND SHOWED ARTWORK IN GALLERIES IN FOUR COUNTRIES. 
AFTER RETURNING TO THE U.S.A. HE HAS BEEN VERY BUSY.CURRENTLY LIVING IN SAN FRANCISCO HIS WORK HAS BEEN PUBLISHED INTERNATIONALLY AND NATIONALLY. EON75 HAS ALSO PRODUCED MURALS FOR THE CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO AND KNOWN MURALIST DOCUMANTARIAN JIM PRIGOFF. HE ALSO HAS PAINTED AT MANY FESTIVALS AND LIVE VENUES IN SAN FRANCSICO, FLORIDA, MIAMI AND NEW YORK CITY.
E.O.N.75’S SIGNATURE STYLE DRAWS THE VIEWER IN WITH ITS ORGANIC FORMS AND COLOR HARMONY. COLOR HARMONY IS THE OVERAL BALANCE OF AN ARTWORK. THE VIEWERS EYE IS CARRIED ON A JOURNEY THROUGH THE ARTWORK AS AN ELEMENT OR COLOR ON THE RIGHT IS JUXAPOTOSED BY A SMALL HINT OF COLOR ON THE LEFT. THIS NATURAL BALANCE CARRIES THE VIEWERS EYE THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PAINTING WITHOUT THEM EVEN KNOWING IT. IN ESSENCSE YOU ARE ROMANCED AND DECIEVED BY THE COLOR AND IT CONTROLS YOUR VIEWING OF THE PAINTING. ONLY THROUGH HIS CONNECTION WITH NATURE AND A STRICT SCHOOLING IN ARCHITECTURE AND ITS RIGOR COULD THIS HARMONY AND PRECISION COME FORTH IN HIS PAINTINGS.
