Erik Freyman was an artist born in Leningrad, USSR, in 1932. He was known for his unique blend of the stylish era of the 1930s and the high art of the 1950s. Freyman’s art was characterized by elegant and sensual figures that exuded an aura of glamour and prosperity. He often posed his subjects in social or public settings, which gave his art a distinctly urban and sophisticated feel.

Freyman’s mastery of the airbrush technique allowed him to create limited edition pieces. Each piece is unique in its own way. He signed and numbered each piece and individually produced them by hand. This added to the exclusivity of his artwork. Freyman’s use of this technique also enabled him to create variations within each edition of certain background patterns and textures. The technique makes each piece even more special.

The influence of Cubism was apparent in much of the Art Deco period of the 1930s. Erik Freyman acknowledged this influence in his artwork. He used flat planes that gracefully modulated into crisp lines and fluid contours. It created a balanced and elegant style. He also used a soft palette of mostly grays and pinks, which was a conscious understatement to the boldly drawn forms. This subtlety added a strong dynamic to his overall composition.
