Dengan kartun sebagai bentuk dasarnya (gaya), Eko Nugroho menjelajahi beragam media, seperti lukisan, gambar, bordir, mural, animasi, dan objek tiga dimensi. Selama bertahun-tahun, ia dikenal sebagai ‘presiden’ dari kompilasi komik Daging Tumbuh, sebuah kumpulan komik yang tumbuh menjadi salah satu penanda paling penting bagi kecenderungan baru ekspresi artistik Indonesia.

Dalam dunia wacana, karya Eko menerangkan paradoks dan kontradiksi masyarakat kontemporer Indonesia. Ia mendekati isu sosio-politik dengan perspektif yang riang, asyik, dan sarat humor, meskipun pada saat yang bersamaan ia menyampaikan pesan-pesan pahit dan sarkastik untuk menyalurkan kritiknya terhadap pemerintah, institusi global, dan isu sosial.
