Since 2000 he has lived and worked in Lidköping, Sweden in a house situated in the midst of a forest on the edge of a lake. Small events and phenomena from his everyday life and the natural world that surrounds him become the outset for his works. Hovering between abstraction and figuration, Eriksson’s meditative works create a window onto the outside world and can be interpreted as patchwork topographies or details of organic forms such as trees, earth and rock formations.

Eriksson has exhibited extensively and his work is included in important institutional and private collections. Recent important exhibitions include a major solo presentation of Eriksson’s work opened at Skissernas Museum, Lund in June 2021. The artist had an exhibition of watercolours, drawings and tapestries at Nordic Watercolour Museum, Tjörn in September 2020. Eriksson was commissioned to create a public painting for the main entrance of New Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm in 2017. His work was exhibited at the 30th São Paulo Biennial, São Paulo (2012) and The Nordic Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale in 2011.
