Reagan Charles Cook is a Canadian artist and designer based in Venice, California. Born in 1989, in Kitchener, Ontario he holds degrees from the University of Waterloo and the University of Southern California.
Spanning a diverse range of mediums and styles, his work has been displayed in galleries, museums and magazines across North America and Europe most notably: The Drawing Room, Light and Space Contemporary, Artinformal, Parkett Magazine, the Arnhem Museum of Modern Art and 1340 Gallery.
In addition to his career as a contemporary artist, Cook has contributed designs and creative concepts for companies in Toronto, Los Angeles, and San Francisco - ranging from small tech firms to Fortune 500 brands.
Following in the long tradition of folk artists, my work is primarily utilitarian and decorative, characterized by a naive style and a limited creative process. Commercial and low-brow, my art expresses the values and aesthetics of suburban culture, specifically the efforts to control image and identity in the internet age.
