Chris Cody (b. 1977) combines his extensive knowledge of pop culture and his talent for drawing to bring his work to life. Often infused with references to film and music, Chris uses markers, colored pencils, and oil pastels to pay homage to icons of the eras that shaped him, with a focus on the '80s and '90s. Chris also enjoys drinking beer and visiting local bars and breweries; this has made him a natural fit for several beer based collaborations. Chris has been making work and participating in the Austin art scene for years and now practices out of SAGE once a week.
