Eric Pow was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. A Chinese born American with a mix of cultures learned the art of illustration through America’s video game culture and paper crafting from his family culture. While working his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in Graphic Design he excelled in his courses in sculpture. After working a number of years in Design he began re-exploring his youth by creating paper cuts and other techniques. In 2012 he started creating the art that defines him today, a 3D paper art style that incorporates nature and humanity’s relation to it.
