A New York City native, Gary Kroman began working independently as a freelance illustrator in 1972. He worked extensively for ad agencies and magazines. In 1973 he began illustrating for Relix magazine. Inspired by Rick Griffin, Kelly, Stanley Mouse and many of the San Francisco psychedelic comix and poster artists of the late sixties and early seventies, he created volumes of artworks used as posters, magazine covers, album covers, CD covers and t-shirts.
He is well published and is featured in the Paul Grushkin book “The Art Of Rock” Vol. 1.
Kroman continues to paint today, using more contemporary techniques and mediums including plexiglass, with a subject focus of celebrities.
