Eric Joyner

As a collector of toy robots and a connoisseur of donuts, artist Eric Joyner paints what he loves. His paintings are compelling and always dynamically composed, making them endlessly fun to engage with. Joyner is able to humanize what most people think of as cold, steel machines, whether they are performing a simple act of kindness, standing in line at a bakery, or in the boxing ring. Many of his paintings have found their way into other media, featuring on several record album covers including one for Ben Folds Five, a print for Hello Kitty, and set dressing for The Big Bang Theory. 

The Lost and Found depicts a robotic family heading to church, passing by sugary temptation along the way.
