Artist Spotlight with Eric Vozzola
Meet Eric Vozzola! An accomplished artist, graphic designer, muralist and human being trying to find his own language through his art. After a year of preparation, Vozzola exhibited his second solo art show “A Visual Language” at the Winchester Gallery in Las Vegas.
Vozzola began developing his exhibit by fusing the ideas of vast landscapes he’s traveled and cryptic language inspired by hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, and cave wall drawings. “I wanted to fill a space with images that were somewhat cryptic and ornamental on the surface, but held deeper meaning underneath, allowing the viewer to interpret it as they wish” said Vozzola.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Vozzola graduated UNLV with a BFA in graphic design and studio art. He has worked on murals for the Life is Beautiful Music Festival as well as other miscellaneous projects Downtown. He is a part of the design team at The Venetian Las Vegas and a freelance graphic designer.
