“Noah Erenberg is actively building a vocabulary to express the world around him in his own terms. Built up with curious, startling and subtle color combinations and a range of gestural marks, Erenberg re-creates the sights and sounds of Isla Vista, California with an affecting freedom from convention.”
~ Michael Darling, Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
I have been an artist since 1990. I paint and draw because it makes me feel wonderful. I like to work outside and look around my neighborhood at the trees, the ocean and the surfers.
I have a studio in my house and my artist friends come over and inspire me to make art. They make me happy that I am an artist. With every good painting and drawing I make, I become a better artist.
My favorite colors are red, blue and pink. I like to paint abstract paintings because I like bright colors and crazy shapes. Abstract painting reminds me of hip hop music. The abstract shapes come out of my head. Abstract means “from my head”. I like to make text drawings. I copy words from magazines, CDs, posters and newspapers. I use ball point pens, felt tip pens and colored pencils to make my drawings.
