Max Bare is an artist based in Chicago, born in Ohio and brain-fed in Savannah (SCAD grad). As a fine artist he creates narrative mixed media pieces filled with paint, tapirs, bears, wood and love. Materials include customized circus barnwood and poster paper scrap collaged from his old day-job as a conservation wizard apprentice. Thematic series range from sibling reflections of family love and ooey-gooeyness to themes of impending apocalyptic pan-dimensional mayhem. As a commercial illustrator he currently pencils, inks, and pedicures everyone's favorite drunken Big Foot and Plesiosaur driven comic book: "Mystery Afoot." As a curator he started by opening his own gallery Get Knifed, then curated A.Okay Official gallery and now co-owns/assimilated into the collective/gallery: OhNo!Doom.
