Eric David Lough is a photographer, abstract expressionist, steampunk artist and poet. A native of Warren, Ohio, Mr. Lough has been awarded with many honors for both his art and his poetry.

He was one of five local artists to be selected for the Sudden Opportunity Art Exhibit held in 2012 by the Trumbull Art Gallery in Warren, Ohio; his artwork was also selected by the Trumbull Art Gallery to be in the 47th and 48th Juried Exhibits in 2011 and 2012.
Mr. Lough has also had art shows in Maui, Hawaii, at Art Mixx and Denver, Colorado, at Sketch Wine Bar, Blackout Art Show at Punch Bowl Social and The Sol Shine Gallery.
He is also the author of four books of poetry titled, Sidewalk Blues, Insane Earth, The Baritones Came in Strong Making the Knees Go Weak, and Stupid Cupid and the B-Side Poems. His poetry has been published in numerous literary magazines around the world such as The Ampersand Review, 3AM Magazine and Memoir(and). He has had the privilege to be the National Poet of the Month for Kent State University Trumbull Campus in 2011 and 2012 where he gave readings and signings of his books.

Mr. Lough’s most recent photography project is called, “Typewriter Erotica.”
Mr. Lough got his idea for the project from a few pictures he came across from the 1920’s by the same title, and being an avid collector of antique typewriters himself, he decided to recreate and update the idea with his own means of self-expression portraying the sensual partnership of skin and steel. Once he found some willing models, he began planning his Photography Project by building all the set designs for each shoot and creatively using props to enhance the feel of whichever era he was shooting. To put it simply, whatever year the typewriter was made, was the year that the set had to be and the models had to “look the part,” bringing glamour, pin-up, boudoir, power, confidence, erotic desire and passion. The whole project took over 3½ months to complete.

Eric David Lough writes with a sensual honesty that provokes me to celebrate my humanity, to get up and live, to feel, to see the world, to relish the meandering of my soul. Lough is a word smith par excellence. He has traveled the side roads of existence and is definitely my favorite contemporary American poet.
—Graham Hughes

Lough’s erotic sensuality is delectable and his word play is far from being common.

As an actor, I pretend to know many things while truly knowing only what a writer gives me. Eric David Lough’s words give artists a place to lavish in thought without the saccharin or necessary love.

—Shannon Smith, Performing Artist, New York City

Eric David Lough’s descriptions are provocative and mesmerizing. Reading his words makes me feel like I’m on a sexy acid trip to a place where men are emotional and smart.
