Eric de Bruijn was born in 1957 in the Netherlands. After his High School Studies he worked as a painter and art performer. He attended the Privat Artist Academy by Greek philosopher & artist Angelos Tassapoulos and shared studios with a variety of painters, like Saad Ali, Denny Jacobs and  Quintijn van Eijk. His work can be best described as lyrical, abstract and figurative and is exhibited throughout all Europe and the United States.

Eric also participated in theater projects and collaborated in the publication of poetry books with famous Dutch singers like Frank Boeijen and Stef Bos. The collaboration of these two different art forms lead to beautiful results in which both lyrics and art influence and strengthen each other. Eric now lives in Lagos, Portugal and works in Spain, the Netherlands and France.
