Gary Taxali

Gary Taxali is a Canadian contemporary fine artist and illustrator known for his iconic retro style pop art and illustrations.  Taxali creates mixed-media works on paper, sculptures, drawings and paintings.   

 

His work intersects fine art, pop culture, design and 1930s style iconography, graphics and typography.  He is inspired by vintage comics, pop culture and period advertisements.  Gary Taxali tweaks conventional styling and contexts to cast light on life’s constant paradoxes, whether sex, love, consumer frenzy, or just that longing for something else.  Taxali delves into the desires, feelings and emotional preoccupations that make us all human.  

 

He employs humour, emotions and relatable imagery creating narratives on the banality and idiosyncracies of everyday life which he describes as his “preoccupation of constant paradoxes such as human relationships, love, isolation […] economic despair and frustration.”  Taxali characters are a common theme and reappear in his work, including his iconic toy monkey and Oh No and Oh Oh characters which have also been created into designer collectible toys.  He graduated from OCAD University. 

 

Gary is recognized as one of the top 100 illustrators in the world in “100 Illustrators” by art book publisher Taschen (2017).  He has been teaching at OCAD University since 2003 and is currently  tenured faculty at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada holding the rank of full Professor.  

 

Gary’s body of work encompasses a broad spectrum of media and appears in many forms.  This includes public and private galleries and museums, leading international magazines, publications,  merchandise (products, posters, designer toys, fashion accessories, coins, etc.), books and public installations in the art, design and experiential realms.     

 

He has worked with media outlets and publications, including Rolling Stone, GQ, Newsweek, the New York Times and MTV.  Other clients include Time, Fortune, The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, Fast Company, Reader’s Digest, Business Week, Warner Bros., LA Times,  Paramount Pictures, The Gap, Harry Rosen, Chapters Indigo, Converse, Levi’s, Sony, McSweeny’s, MTV, Coca-Cola.

 

 



Gary Taxali visually blends now with then. His style, inspired by vintage comics and advertising art, is repurposed with the goal of communicating the ironies and comical essence of popular culture. His work is at once alluring and endearing. Despite the vintage look, he is neither maudlin nor nostalgic. His imagery is rich in satiric verve."

Steven Heller

In 2005, he launched his first vinyl toy, The Toy Monkey, which included a special edition and a silkscreen print commissioned by The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. This led Gary to release his OH NO and OH OH vinyl figures through his company, Chump Inc.

Gary created the cover art and inside illustrations for Aimee Mann’s latest album @#%&*! Smilers, which won a 2009 Grammy Award Nomination for Best Art Package Design.

In 2010, he released his first children’s book entitled This Is Silly!, published by Scholastic Press.   

In 2012, the Royal Canadian Mint commissioned Taxali for a series of six artist-themed celebration coins with his unique art with the themes of birthday, anniversary, wedding, new baby, tooth fairy and O Canada.   Reference:  https://www.mint.ca/store/artist/Gary+Taxali-13900018

 

The Taxali 300, a collection of his work was released in 2010.  In 2011, he released two additional monographs.  The first was  I Love You, OK? published by teNeues in Germany, and the second was Mono Taxali published by 27_9 in Italy.  In 2017, he self-published another monograph titled Happiness With a Caveat.  

In 2012, The Royal Canadian Mint released six Gary Taxali Special Edition 25¢ coins.  Each coin is stamped, bearing his initials.  Gary is a past member of the Stamp Advisory Committee for Canada Post where he initiated many stamps such as Marriage Equality and Canadian Illustrator.

He created artist-designed silk pocket squares for Canada’s major men’s retailer, Harry Rosen in 2014.   Six of his works were acquired by the Library of Congress since 2018 for their permanent collection.  In 2018, Gary was selected to represent North America by the United Nations and created artwork to raise awareness for World Hunger for their Zero Hunger campaign.

Aside from his fine art gallery shows and illustration work, Gary also devotes a portion of his time teaching and lecturing at various arts organizations and schools such as OCAD University (Toronto, Canada) where he is a tenured professor in illustration, The Art Director’s Club of Houston (Houston, USA), Dankmarks Designskole (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Istituto Europeo Di Design (Rome, Italy). 

He is a Founding Member of IPA (The Illustrators’ Partnership of America) and sat on the Advisory Board of 3×3: The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration.  He served on the Stamp Advisory Committee for Canada Post (2012 to 2018). 

 

Gary also juries many students and professional competitions, including The Juno’s (Screening Committee), The Society of Illustrators, The National Magazine Awards, The Dallas Society of Visual Communications, Toronto Outdoor Fair,  and 3×3: The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration.

 

 



What truly distinguishes Gary's work is his use of surface. While other artists gravitate towards a clean, smooth surface of vellum or paper or canvas, Taxali looks for the unusual. His surface range from wood to metal to unusual surfaces no other artist has approached. His search started with found papers, old textbooks and antique books to draw upon purposefully, leaving the marks of age, not resorting to the added textures commonly found in today's Photoshop. there is a certain spirituality to the work surfaces.

Someone before the artist has made their marks - dates, signatures, addresses, stains, doodles - which force the artist to be sensitive to their presence, thus keeping his additions minimal. While the source of the book or paper isn't important to the concept of the drawing, it does import a sense of the past not found in other artists' drawings or illustration. There is a sense of history and reflection in this work, reminiscent of things past - comics, advertising ephemera, graphics, typography, icons.

ACTIVISM and ART

Gary has created a number of activism art commenting on current social and political issues.  He was included in the book, Signs of Resistance,  a Visual History of Protest in America by Bonnie Siegler (2018).  The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.  has officially acquired several artworks from Gary Taxali including “Hypocrisy”, “Intimidation”, “NO”, “Pucks”, “Big Button”, and “Wild Forever”.

Techniques

Taxali creates mixed-media works on paper, sculptures, drawings and paintings.  He often uses vintage paper in a style reminiscent of vintage comics, popular culture and advertising.  He is known for his retro stylized art in the realm of pop art consisting of his unique style of markings, drawings,  icons, characters, vintage cartoons and typography.  His works consists of mixed media evoking themes in modern society with references to depression-era typography, graphics, advertising, and posters with a retro vintage sensibility. 

He employs humour, emotions and relatable imagery, creating narratives on the banality and idiosyncrasies of everyday life, which he describes as his “preoccupation of constant paradoxes such as human relationships, love, isolation […] economic despair and frustration.”  Taxali characters are a common theme and reappear in his work, including his iconic toy monkey and Oh No and Oh Oh characters, which have also been transformed into designer collectible toys.  He has created bronze sculptures, many of which have been commissioned by the Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame Museum.   

Gary notes, “The natural, aged surfaces of paper and book covers have always attracted me. The idea that something discarded can be made to be accidentally beautiful is an overarching theme I often explore in my art.  Layering typographic elements and characters aid me in these discoveries, coupling rightly rendered forms with looser, stream-of-consciousness ones.  In this manner, the accidental nature of finding things is just as much a surprise to me, and I hope it is for the viewer.  Whether they’re tangible as they exist in the images or the themes that surface“. 

As Shepard Fairey notes, “Gary Taxali is one of those rare artists whose work is immediately inviting and familiar, yet idiosyncratic and unmistakable.  Gary has created a universe of characters, slogans and motifs that is reminiscent of ’50s advertising, comics and painted signs, but rendered in a minimal, sort of goofy, but very sophisticated style that could only be Gary Taxali. … Though much of Gary’s work appears to be about struggle and disappointment, there is gleeful mischief, beauty and poetic iron n the equation as well.  … Some of the warmth in Gary’s work is more sublime like the nostalgia in his use of old book covers and ephemera.  He clearly finds beauty in the things others might overlook or throw away.  .. there is a delicate care and preciousness even in his intentionally distressed or deteriorated images.  The illustrations are beautiful both as images and fluid, abstract mark marking. ….His fluid integration of both illustration and art, or illustration as art, is a testament to the strength of his vision“.  

 

Steven Heller who wrote a forward in his monograph “I Love You, Ok”? notes “Gary Taxali visually blends now with then. His style, inspired by vintage comics and advertising art, is repurposed with the goal of communicating the ironies and comical essence of popular culture. His work is at once alluring and endearing. Despite the vintage look, he is neither maudlin nor nostalgic. His imagery is rich in satiric verve.”  Reference;  I Love You, Ok?  published by teNeues.
