Chris Bigalke

Painter and illustrator residing in Portland, Oregon for the last 10 years working as a full-time freelance artist. His pop surrealistic approach and subject matter lends itself to include elements of nature, animals, furniture, psychedelic environments, surreal and lush moments. Interests include; ambient and noise music, tacos, the apocalypse, parallel realities, extra-terrestrials, plants, earth, and flannels. ~ “Bigalke has developed a distinctive style that layers vintage imagery to create texture and depth in scenes that cast a pale glow due to his habitual use of a faded color palette…Frequently featuring illustrated animals and antique personages, oceanic or forested environs, and it wouldn’t be rock and roll without a skeleton every once in a while, Bigalke’s cohesive collages feel earthy but abstract, legible yet a potpourri of mashed together elements. Whether designing for the Red Bull Sound Select series or countless bands and venues near and far, there’s always an organic flow to his work born of his background in drawing and painting with oils and acrylics.” — Chris Young, Vortex Music Magazine ~ “Featuring saturated, grainy colors and outlandish imagery that combines Andy Warhol with the Surrealists, Bigalke’s concert posters belong in a museum. Everything from banjo-strumming bears to wizened carrots play out their alternative scene dreams on his work.” - Mackenzie Patel, LearnTravelArt.com www.chrisbigalke.com www.showdeer.com www.dearlander.com Chris Bigalke joined Society6 on November 16, 2011
