Erin Joy Svitko (ESTKO) is an abstract aerosol artist that moved to Charlotte in 2014 from Philadelphia. She’s been creating geometric & botanical abstractions for years, while experimenting on different canvases like walls, wood, up-cycled mediums and functional art. ESTKO also designs patterns from magnifying leftover spray paint drippings that resemble Rorschach tests. She has focused on drawing and painting patterns that show the juxtaposition between geometric versus flowing lines found in nature, or even more so, crystalized patterns versus muscle-like structures. She also uses abstract line art to celebrate women’s bodies and bring awareness to struggles that are uncomfortable yet need more attention brought to them. She wants to help end stigmas and encourages others to do the same.
