Eric Junker

An avid outdoorsman, surfer, and road tripper, Eric Junker channels his restless energy into creating art and design inspired by the colliding energies of his life in the city and his passion for nature and life on the road. His murals can be found throughout Southern California, where he lives, and as far afield as Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mexico, Costa Rica, and New York City.

In his interdisciplinary creative practice, he contributes design, art, and ideas to a client roster that includes Oculus, TOMS, Patagonia, SeaVees, Roy Choi, Jack’s Stir Brew, Ventura Spirits, Silver Lake Wine, Topo Chico U.S.A., and Los Angeles' Center Theatre Group. His work has been recognized by publications including the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, C California Magazine, Elle Décor, and Angelino Magazine. He is also active in non-profits that support the ACLU, pediatric cancer research, youth empowerment, and rural community revitalization.
