Eric Poland is an abstract illustrator and painter with a focus on local architecture. His artistic inspiration began as a child that he enjoyed drawing still life and landscapes. Now his primary inspiration comes from the buildings of the newly awakening city of Birmingham. His art is characterized by vivid colors, contrasting lines, and the abstraction of reality.

He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Montevallo in 2006. His senior art show concentrated more on editorial illustration, which used a combination of both hand drawn and computer illustration. This style is indicative of what he is creating now.
