“There are expressionists and impressionist. I think I’m an aggravationist.”- Charles Bragg
Whose world is more absurd, Charles Bragg’s or ours? This is the question inevitably raised by the satirical visions so skillfully painted, engraved, sculpted, and drawn by this artist from the West Coast. Charles Bragg’s pictorial lampoons and sardonic pageants – directed at such power groups as the military, the church, and the professions – somehow seems the essence of rationality.
Charles Bragg was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1931. He began his career as an artist in the early fifties, but it wasn’t until 1968, at a hugely successful one-man show, that the style that has made him so popular really emerged. Since then, he has achieved worldwide recognition for his satirical studies of mankind and his environment. He has held solo exhibitions from San Francisco to Vienna, from New Orleans to Munich, and from Philadelphia to Honolulu and Long Beach. He has done commissions for PLAYBOY magazine, won several national awards for artistic merit, and been the subject of a PBS documentary, “Charles Bragg – One of a Kind.” Charles Bragg currently resides in Hollywood Hills, California.
