Dave Perillo was born in 1974, the same year Wham-O introduced the Slip N’ Slide. After graduating college with a degree in graphic design, he began working as a illustrator in the glamorous world of medical publishing. After countless drawings of dancing kidneys and otoscopes, he felt a need to feed his creative juices and began to create his own pop culture inspired art. This path launched him into a world of comic conventions, art galleries and freelance design.
He has done work for prestigious clients such as Disney Consumer Products, Disney Television Animation, Target, Warner Bros & CBS Television. He has had his work showcased in many galleries, including a recent solo exhibition at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, CA.
Dave draws inspiration for his work from many of the following sources: 1950’s Sci-Fi Movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna Barbera, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock & Character Advertising Icons. Dave currently resides in the ‘burbs of Philly, believes that bowling is the sport of kings and a bag of Swedish Fish is a seafood dinner.
