Chris Deacon
BIOGRAPHY

Chris Deacon has spent the majority of his life in Florida.  This backdrop has always been a driving force in his work, that often intermingles the invasiveness of the tourist and the ubiquitous grit of the south.

 

His creative career has included teaching college art, digital illustration, woodworking, production art, curating, and project management for themed environments.

 

Deacon’s themed management experience has involved large-scale projects with a famous rodent that spans the globe from Orlando, Florida to Tokyo, Japan.  His project management footprint is also included in various museum exhibitions from South Florida to Washington, DC to the Adirondacks of Upstate New York.

 

His work has been exhibited in several galleries and institutions including, The Tampa Museum of Art, The Dali Museum, and the Polk Museum of Art (in association with The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center and the Museum of History and Innovation in Seattle).  His work is also included in the Tampa Museum of Art's Contemporary Art Collection.
