Out of the Box Saturday

It's all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. I'll cover something sing | songy one week, and artsy | fartsy the next.


I have a Gary Taxali poster hanging in my office at work. I have to admit that I love the poster, but never really looked up an of his other pieces, nor do I know much about him.

He was born in India and raised in Canada. Both his fine art work and Illustrations are known in the US. His retro stylized art is reminiscent of the 1930s and best described as “reinvented pop art” and rooted from an award winning illustration background. He's had a Grammy nomination, tons of awards for his art, and his work has shown in many magazines such as GQ, The New Yorker and more.

“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

Here's Gary Taxali's work. All work was gotten off his site, and belongs to Gary Taxali.
