Eric Beltz’s Vision of an American Mythology

Note: Contains nudity.

Native American mythology and America’s birth as a democratic nation is front and centre in the gorgeous black and white drawings of Eric Beltz. A Californian visual artist and UC Santa Barbara staff member, Beltz creates finely detailed artworks, ones that are rooted in a very rural ideal of Americana, think rustic log cabins and hardy pioneers. Throw in some Pagan-esque rituals and magic and you have something special, heightened by a witty implementation of text.
