Aaron Bir is a professional illustrator, cartoonist, and painter who has spent the last several years living in Austin, TX. In the immediate future, however, Aaron’s journey will take him elsewhere as he travels west and creates new art.
Aaron’s motivation is creating a confluence of narrative, expression and symbol on two dimensional surfaces in styles ranging from modern cartoon to expressionistic-realism. His body of work represents a variety of media from painting to illustration to mixed media collage art. (My personal favorites are his sci-fi pieces.)
Because Bir is leaving town, there will be a silent auction of almost every piece of art he’s created in Austin, taking place at on Saturday, May 18th, at Logan’s on 6th. See the artist’s website for a complete list of works on sale.
Auction runs from 7pm-11pm, and all pieces will be starting at exceptionally low minimum bids. There will also be various prints and drawings available for immediate purchase. In the beautiful private room of Logan’s on 6th, there will be full, cash bar and all attendees are invited stay and enjoy themselves until the bar closes.
Aaron was primarily self-taught, and also studied at the School of Fine Art at Ohio University in Athens, OH. We hope that his path brings him back to Austin again someday soon, where he has been an active and valuable contributor to the local arts community.
