This exhibition of Scott Bakal’s work contains a selection his most awarded commercial pieces and his current personal ongoing gallery/narrative projects. Whether making art for an editorial, work of fiction or personal narrative, Scott’s imagery is always pulled from a very intimate point of view, often to comment on things socially and politically charged. It is this unique visual viewpoint that allows Scott¹s work to break beyond the confines of any single idea and blur the boundaries between illustration and fine art.
Scott’s most recent personal work utilizes alien characters as a voice through which he makes visual statements about contemporary culture. He first created his alien character during the 2008 Presidential elections in his sketchbooks and used him to make visual sly jokes about events during the year. Since then, the character has grown into a familiar visual tool to confront complex subject matter. The current theme in the show revolves around environmental issues.
