Quirky, thoughtful, and always reminding Omaha to stay “good-weird”, Pennsylvanian transplant, Christopher Couse is always on the artistic move.
You can find some of his current work at the Bemis Benefit Art Auction, but he’s also been a part of the Tiny Mural Project, and just finished up an exhibition at Petshop gallery featuring iconic chairs in the pop culture realm.
Much of Couse’s work acts as commentary, often playing off advertisements and weaving together elements of collage, illustration, and photography along with comedic angst to tell a narrative.
“A lot of my style comes from drawing inspiration from collagists, early pop-art works, street art, and growing up with a lot of great cartoons in the 90’s. But I also get really energized and inspired by looking at lot of contemporary peers, local and international.”
