We have shown the psychedelic works of Eric Shaw on our site before, and when we saw this new Wild Nothing video for the track, "A Dancing Shell," we thought, this shit looks familiar? Not in the, this art is shit sort of way, but in the, hey that is fun and familiar. Sure enough, this video, directed by Hayley Akins, with animation by Hayley and Andy Williams, features the paintings of Eric Shaw. We recommend watching it at the highest HD you can do, full screen, and eat a mushroom cap. Just one. Wait, don't do that.

Eric Shaw's colorful gouache paintings depict bold, graphic and pattern-laden spaces that are abstracted and dizzying with very opaque and hard edged forms intertwining across the image.
Erotica // Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Eric Shaw doodles obsessively, delving into the space where all things psychedelic thrive. Referencing Hinduism, Mayan, Native American creation myths and hippie subculture in his wildly disorienting patterns. Semi abstract illustrations that are a little disturbing, confusing and erotically engaging. Shaw creates slightly aggressive, sexual and weird anatomical explorations.
