ABOUT DAVE COOPER
(Nova Scotia, Canada, 1967) Dave Cooper has created award-winning comics, children’s television shows and short films, while at the same time developing a career as an oil painter. His visual universe stretches from cute to weirdly distasteful, and his works often feature offbeat characters in awkward or erotic situations. The common denominator, as the artist explains, is “an element of extreme contrast, whether it’s cute and horrifying, innocent and lurid, grungy and delicate, light and dark.”
Cooper has received numerous awards across the different media he explores. His periodical, Weasel, won both the underground Ignatz Award and the mainstream Harvey Award in 2000, while his short film, The Absence of Eddy Table (2016) has received prizes at the Ottawa International Animation Festival, the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema and the Amanda Awards, Norway. A major retrospective of Cooper’s comic art was held in Paris in 2002 and his oil paintings have been shown in New York and Los Angeles.
