Aerick Burton - Multimedia Art and Origami

An official eighties baby and Kalamazoo native, Aerick Burton lives his life without boundaries, and strives to make art that transcends genres. By utilizing multiple mediums, from paper folding to photography, he is able to create art of all kinds, from pop art to classical origami.


His inner creator is fueled by remaining open to the flow of the universe and finding inspiration in everything and everyone. For Aerick, art is an expression of his love for the beauty and peace that surrounds us every day. His art serves to represent the belief that love, peace, and beauty can be found anywhere and everywhere we look, especially if that's what we're looking for.


“The aim of my art is to turn our global consciousness towards unity by embracing individuality and diversity and exploring the idea that there are no classifications or boundaries except the ones we put on ourselves.”
