KEVIN SCALZO .............................. ABOUT

xxxxxxxxxx

Kevin Scalzo was born in Winnipeg, Canada in 1969
and currently resides in Northampton, Ma. with his wife and daughter.
Kevin considers himself largely self taught, and some of his influences include
underground comics, japanese pop culture, cubism, textile designs, and almost
any old animated cartoon.
In 2001 Kevin published a full color comic book featuring his character "Sugar
Booger" to much acclaim, and it sold out in many countries including, Italy,
Japan, Spain, Britain, Canada and France.
His paintings and drawings have been shown in numerous gallerys around the
country, and he continues to unleash upon the unsuspecting public, artwork
that is filled with his signature cute, creepy, sweaty and anxiety inducing images.
Ultimately pushing the boundaries of what's acceptable and what is bizarre in
the worlds of painting and graphic comics art.
