Portland artist, Alan Scally, shares his bio, work and infectious personality–Enjoy.
My bio, or more properly my bio-hazard goes something like this:
62 year old, 1st generation American, in fact first of my family born here. Roots are in the Occupied Territories of Ireland. I grew up near Portland in Gresham and Beaverton. I have lived a lot of places such as Chicago, Belfast, Toronto and elsewhere.
I have been seriously working on my art since about 2006. Major influences are Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, the Impressionists, and The Undertaker.
I earned a J.D. in 2003 but have never practiced law. 4 marriages which I vaguely recall.
I’ve had plays produced and/or given staged readings, have published fiction/poetry/journalism.
I’m a part of the local sports car and motorcycle road racing community. This is why I’m recovering from 2 cracked lower back vertebrae, 3 cracked ribs and some deep soft tissue damage on the lower right side.
I hope that’s enough–I was altar boy of the year in the Portland Archdiocese in 1965.
All the best–Alan
