"My paintings examine the relationship between what is measurable
and the ethereal.  Combining my deep interest in the mysterious and
the space, forms, and light qualities found in architecture, my work
explores the tension that is created between these two seemingly
contradictory worlds."  
  - Erik Niemann

Erik has been painting professionally since January 2002.  Erik's paintings are collected
throughout 18 US states as well as Australia, Mexico, Tunisia and Hong Kong.

Between September 2008 and May 2010, three of Erik’s paintings were on display
inside the United States Embassy in Dili, East Timor through the Art in Embassies
program of the US State Department.

Erik has a Bachelors of Architecture degree from the University of Kansas (1995) and
also studied one year in Copenhagen, Denmark for study abroad, and a year at
graduate school at the Architectural Association in London, England.
