Even as a young child, Chip Cox enjoyed drawing. Everything from cars to light switches. In high school, Chip purchased his first computer – a Commodore Vic 20. Although primitive by today’s standards, the Vic 20 launched Chip into creating animated, pixel-based art.
After completing his bachelor’s degree in Art in 1989, Chip purchased his first Macintosh computer and entered his career in advertising and art direction in St. Louis and later Chicago. When an ad agency Chip worked for closed its doors in 2001, Chip started his own design company where he continued to create advertisements, billboards, trade show displays, marketing materials, videos, and web sites for a variety of client companies, large and small.
During his career transition, Chip’s art evolved into a style of simplified line work, using bright colors and pop art inspired patterns. Chip began displaying his art outside his home studio in 2017 through art festivals, where he’s received multiple awards and started building a fan base.
