Erb is a multidisciplinary artist. For a decade and under another name, he worked in photojournalism -with dozens of publications- as well as in art photography and painting, holding many individual and collective exhibitions.
At the beginning of 2011, Erb gave a shift to his expression working in digital illustration, design, video, poetry and sound. In this period, he developed the illustration project Nature, a variety of sound tracks for videoart and his first video-poetry collection, Nomadelia. With Nature he had three exhibitions with a Bilbao gallery.
Nowadays, he is working on street poetry, a constant evolution project that embodies poetry into murals, posters, urban happenings and video. Furthermore, Erb is very active on sound and poetry experimentation.
