Craig Odle was born in Houston, Texas in 1987 and grew up in Beaumont Texas. He is a surrealist painter who finds inspiration in day to day life. The concepts he uses in his paintings come to him from conversations, music, movies, dreams and sometimes just odd thoughts. The titles used for his pieces generally speak to whatever idea that was used in the conception of the piece. Sometimes his pieces have a deep or dark meaning while other times the piece may seem like a riddle or a pun. Most of his work is acrylic on canvas.
