Curtis Gannon Canadá, b. 1973.


Born in Canada, he spent his childhood and adolescence in the southern United States. At the age of fifteen, his family settled in Houston and it was there that he began his fascination with American comics and especially those made between the 40s and 70s.


His artwork explores the internal structure of comics, focusing on the layout of the blank spaces between the vignettes.


Among his solo and group exhibitions are: “Allegories and Parables”, Commerce Street Art Warehouse, Houston (2000); “Closer, closer”, Lawndale Art Center, Houston (2002); “Work and Play”, Flor y Canto Gallery, San Diego (2003); “Over Hung”, Concrete Walls, Los Angeles (2004); “Hard Edge Shadows”, Art of Framing Gallery, San Diego (2005); “Together Again, and Better than Ever”, Art of Framing Gallery, San Diego (2006); “Collage”, Williams Tower, Houston (2008); “Recent Work”, Sicardi Gallery, Houston (2010); “Pasted Pages: The Art of Collage”, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (2011).
