Press and Essays

2009 Worcester Magazine "Dark World Rolls Out"
2008 Worcester Magazine "Pop Euphoria!"
2006 Pulse Magazine "Next Generation of Local Artists"
2005 Jeff Gomez, writer
"Erik has a multidimensional talent that makes me think of a decahedron: the man can paint, draw, design, and take photographs, all the while imbuing each medium with his own aesthetic that is part Robert Frank, part Robert Rauschenberg, and part Paul Klee. But, that makes it sound boring; what words fail to convey when it comes to Nasinnyk's work is just how eclectic and alive it is. If Abstract Expressionism was invented half a century ago in order to portray in visual art the syncopated rhythms of jazz, then Erik's work reminds me of hip-hop and electronica, mash-ups and IDM: a subtle-yet-mad variety of glitch, punk and beat-influenced genres spliced and diced in the blender of his mind until what comes out is more than what went in. Original stuff for times that feel much less than original."
2002 Worcester Magazine "Young Filmmakers"
