Laron Bickerstaff

Laron Bickerstaff (b. 1971) creates radiant portraiture and stream-of-consciousness text-based artwork. Bickerstaff communicates with American Sign Language and is deeply aware of the visual characteristics of language. In his work, he mixes his own observations with a pop-influenced love of the brand names that populate everyday life: celebrities, stores, food and drink, and institutions.

Bickerstaff joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1997. His ASL "font" has been used by CB2 on a holiday ornament design and a pillow, and he has exhibited his work nationally (See below).
