CEO, Chief Consultant
Eric Andrew Carter is a conceptual artist and a native of Los Angeles. He has worked variously as an actor, theater producer, photographer, musician, and artist. He has also been employed as a business analyst at a major international bank where his analytical mind and creative ways of thinking have proven indispensable.
Eric has worked as a solo artist as well as in collaboration with a variety of visual and performing artists. It was at the California Institute of the Arts that Eric discovered his passion for developing conceptually-driven work in a collaborative environment. By being in a place where he could spend hours a day talking about art, his own creative process took an exciting new shape and focus. It is this experience at CalArts that inspired Eric to form a company that would use the artistic critique as a business model.
Eric founded Conceptual Art Consultants in order to share his passion for ideas with other creative professionals.
