Gary Taxali

Gary Taxali is a contemporary Canadian fine artist, illustrator, and Professor at OCAD University. His retro stylized art, reminiscent of depression era artwork, advertising, typography and packaging, has earned him hundreds of international awards. Taxali’s artwork has a high brow/low brow appeal, and consists of original stylized characters, iconography, and symbols reminiscent of the 1930s best described as "pop art." His artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world including The Jonathan LeVine Gallery, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Contemporary Art Museum in Rome. He has collaborated with various brands including Canadian men’s retailer Harry Rosen on custom-designed silk pocket squares, six Gary Taxali celebration coins for the Royal Canadian Mint, and with musician Aimee Mann on her album Smilers, which earned a 2009 Grammy Award Nomination for Best Art Package.
