Chris Cody (b. 1977) draws on his extensive knowledge of pop culture to bring his signature celebrity portraits to life. Using 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, Cody creates vivid and arresting renditions of his subjects. Cody’s signatures include bold linework, saturated color, and striking features. Cody has been a part of several notable collaborations,including a beer brewed with Holdout Brewing inspired by his love of horror movies and two matchday posters for Austin FC, Austin’s major league soccer team. His work has garnered a cult following over the years, and has been exhibited in venues around Austin and at the Outsider Art Fair, the premiere art fair in the world for self-taught artists.
