Aaron Craig - First Appearance
Aaron Craig is an Australian pop artist based on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. His paintings are recognisable by the rich blend of pop culture that aim to give the viewer a strong sentiment of nostalgia. Often forging together conflicting elements from cartoons, comics, products and advertising until they become familiar at first glance, but at a second look are completely unique. He references his art style as ‘Pop Mash’.
Aaron studied Fine Arts at Newcastle University before ultimately finishing his tertiary education with a bachelor degree in Visual Communication Design at Queensland College of Art. These two degrees helped forge his super flat painting style with a discernible colour palette and strong sense of balance in his paintings.
Aaron has made artwork for clients including Disney, Mattel, Marvel, Sony BMG, Sesame Street, and Mr Men. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as shown in group shows throughout Australia, Europe and the United States.
