Eric Holzman was born in New York City on November 4, 1949. He lives and works in Soho with his wife Casimira and his son Misha. They often summer in the Catskills where he paints en plein air, developing many of the images which become larger studio works.

Over the last decade, he has enjoyed teaching at the New York Studio School and Bard College. Most recently he was the recipient of The Atlantic Pacific Fellowship, an exchange program established to bring American Artists to live and work in Japan. This exhibition celebrates that stay and the resulting studies for developing work.
