Artist: Will Eskridge


Medium: acrylic on wood panel


Athen's local artist, Will Eskridge, creates such colorful and unique works.   From his website: "Going deeper, the series is a celebration of these feared and stigmatized animals while exploring what we perceive as good and evil. Through myths and folklore, these wonderful creatures have been maligned and treated like yesterday’s garbage by society. Eskridge hopes to change these perceptions through his paintings. “If we would just take the time to admire them instead of fearing and thus ousting them due to myths and misunderstandings, we would realize how beautiful and important these creatures truly are.” says Eskridge. The series is an extension of loving our neighbor and looking beyond prejudgement. “Now more than ever we could all use some ‘love thy neighbor’ attitude.”
