Sculptor Eric van Straaten exclusively works in full color 3D printing. He was born in 1969 in Leiden and grew up in Haarlem, The Netherlands. Up until 2010, he sculpted detailed statues by hand before he began to learn the art of 3D design. Within a year, he produced his first 3D printed piece. Van Straaten’s work was soon picked up by several known galleries and collectors. At the moment, his sculptures are sold by galleries in The Netherlands, Belgium, USA and Japan.
