The Bio(hazard) of Painter, Alan Scally

Portland artist, Alan Scally, shares his bio, work and infectious personality–Enjoy.

My bio, or more properly my bio-hazard goes something like this:

Darkness Inevitable

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
