There are a limited number of portraits left and sales will be cut off at the end of the day on Thursday, December 20! A fixture in Portland’s thriving art scene, Haberman recently worked as art staff on season three of Portlandia! He is responsible for the art on the ‘Stu’s Stews’ food cart in the first episode of the season. Check out a video featuring the cart here. He also just sold a painting of Merle Haggard that was given to HIM (the actual Merle) as a gift from a close friend.

Chris Haberman is a working writer, painter, muralist, curator and musician, native to Portland, Oregon. All of his artwork is created from recycled objects, found material from the streets and alleyways of his hometown. A discarded cabinet door or table top quickly becomes the backdrop for an integrated puzzle-poem of figures and text, focusing on subjects like people, politics, the region, pop-culture, media, music, film and literature.
Portland Mayor Sam Adams said in 2009 that “Chris is the hardest working artist in Portland.” In Jan, 2010, Chris was a featured artist for Oregon Art Beat on Oregon Public Broadcasting and was awarded “Portland Artist of the Year” by Barfly Magazine. In January 2011, he and fellow artist Jennifer Mercede won a national artist contest in Las Vegas, competing with artists’ from 10 other cities.
In the Fall of 2011, he completed a 219 wood panel album reproduction for an office mural for record label Kill Rock Stars, and produced a 100 work show of “The Peoples History of Oregon” at Littman and White Gallery at Portland State University. In the summer of 2012, he completed an 80 foot mural about “The History of Hawthorne Blvd.” at 50th Avenue and SE Hawthorne Blvd. on the Eagles Fraternal Lodge. He was born and raised right here in Portland, OR.
