  • So Art Fag City is as relevant as this guy, huh?

    But seriously – interesting paintings. I hate bull fights but I think that only makes them more interesting.

  • NAMBO

    It reminds me of the dreadful memories of bull fighting in my hometown of Cuietzeo, MX! There are certain things that I wish I could not remember from that time. These paintings create amazing illustrations for the mind!

    I really like the first one the bull is so soft and beautiful

  • no way as good as his previous stuff!

  • this is dooope, eric f. is on here, AZ reppin!

  • Eric

    I think he taught one of my painting professors. Always liked his work. also, seems like a totally new direction for him.

  • I agree with David on this one. I’m an Eric Fischl fan, but I caught some of these in person last year and everything about them felt stale. Subject matter, technique, size (they’re way unnecessarily huge), and price (ridiculously expensive). If art world folks didn’t know these were by Eric Fischl, I doubt there’d be nearly as much interest in them.
