Statement

 

Erik Groff is an artist that creates site specific paintings and sculptures using found objects. His early Guerilla installations helped to bridge the once expansive void between ‘respectable’ gallery art and elements of the urban art scene usually referred to as ‘street’ or ‘graffiti art', while simultaneously venturing to further the cause of art through the use of discarded materials.
