OPERA is a massive 8K size animation installation project which portrays our society and history, which is filled with beauty and absurdity. This ambitious piece can be simply defined as a contemporary animated edition of the Renaissance fresco mural paintings. Driven by the spirits of Bosch, Michelangelo, Botticelli and more, Erick enables viewers to experience the range of in-depth emotions through this epic reflection of human life : it is hopeful, funny, thoughtful, yet scary and sad. This piece is not only a living piece of art but an invitation to question the mechanisms of your society and behavior. The universality of its message will move everyone’s heart and thoughts.
