Tyson Bodnarchuk (Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1975) has exhibited his work across Canada and the United States at art galleries as well as art and music festivals. Bodnarchuk is an illustrator based in Montreal who has been obsessed with drawing cute yet creepy monsters since he was able to pick up a pencil. His style is definitely his own, but his work has always been influenced by the likes of Jim Henson, Maurice Sendak, Jack Kirby as well as campy science fiction and horror culture. Bodnarchuk was co-owner of Montreal’s Headquarters Galerie from 2007 to 2011.
