Eric White, a New York-based painter, and professor at the city’s School of Visual Arts, has been making art since he could hold a crayon. “One of my earliest and most distinct memories,” he said, “is listening to The Beatles’ ‘White Album,’ drawing in the dark, while my parents argued upstairs.” He recalled being specifically influenced by Richard Hamilton’s artwork for the album, as well as the Grammy Award-winning cover for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. “I think seeing that imagery was especially powerful because it was so closely associated with the music, which altered my child-brain forever.”
