Painter Erik Barthels’ artwork is more than meets the eye. What look like paint strokes are actually marks from a squeegee, and seemingly simple collages are carefully arranged—and rearranged—until Erik is satisfied. Based in Mandeville, LA, he draws on simple forms and unexpected palettes to create these abstract pieces. Shop Erik’s work on westelm.com.
