About

A notorious homebody, Chad VanGaalen is well known for rarely leaving his basement in Calgary, endlessly drawing, recording and making art. Chad graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2000 and immediately started an active arts practice; his animation and drawings have been shown across Canada and he has toured across North America and Europe. Self-recording, and playing almost every instrument Рincluding many hand-crafted ones РChad has established himself as one of Canada’s most diverse and unpredictable artists. Chad has also produced albums for artists such as Alvvays, Mauno and Women, and is a multi Polaris and JUNO nominee.
