Chris Simonite is an artist from Winnipeg, Canada where his brain froze at an early age due to the Siberia-like temperatures to which he was relentlessly exposed. Legend has it that this frozen brain compels him to spend most of his time making paintings (and occasionally animations/videos) based on pop culture, conspiracy theories and other things that lie at the murky edges.
He has three degrees (BA, BFA, MFA, if you must know) and has shown his art in four countries on Earth. He is also a member of the legendary (in their own minds) Frost Shield Kerfuffle Collective.
Chris Simonite has a musical/comedy/performance art alter ego, a faux Cowpunk Star called Stan Dickie, who was the subject of his MFA thesis. He’s pretty sure the University of Ottawa never forgave him for it. For original satirical songs and more, click here: standickie.com.
