Eric Robison's interpretive paintings of Disney Characters have been selling out continually since his first Goofy at the Disney Gallery in 1990. Now with over 600 characters in his portfolio, his work has crossed international borders in the form of limited edition lithographs, posters and merchandise.
Robison has a natural inclination to capture elements of tradition and twist them into an eclectic expression of visual imagery. His method of creativity is aggressive and bold.
He began his career as an artist in 1987 when he was hired by Walt Disney Imagineering as a show concept designer. While he was there he worked on Euro Disneyland, Paris; Tokyo Disneyland; WDW, Florida, and of course Disneyland, California.
His unique paintings of the classic Disney characters were discovered by Imagineering President Marty Sklar in 1989, the rest as they say is history. Since then he has become a best selling artist in Disney's theme parks, galleries and stores.
His commercial talents have taken him to a 19 year stay with the WALT DISNEY COMPANY, as well as a consultant for MCA Universal Studios, Warner Bros., the Olympics and the Entertainment industry.
Robison's art and design reached International awareness when his 100 Mickey Mouse portraits (for Disneyland's 100th birthday of Walt) broke records; selling out in 40 days. His "one man - 100 paintings" exhibit continues to be featured in Disney Hotels, Museums, magazines, journals, books and merchandise.
This was followed up by Disney asking Robison to paint the 50 year history of Disneyland California. This visual documentation made history in and of itself as it is the only "painted documentation" of its kind.
Most recent is his impressionistic paintings of Donald Duck exhibited in New York City on 5th Ave… A one man showing of 50 original paintings.
For the past 4 years Eric has been at Crazy Shirts in Hawaii as the Creative Director. He is excited to be a part of this traditional Hawaiian Company and is currently adding his "impressions" to the Crazy Shirt collection.
