Coop

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

Coop, real name Chris Cooper, is a hot rod artist working from Los Angeles. He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1968, and describes his occupation as “Insensitive Artiste”. His work consists primarily of barely clothed Bettie Page-style 1950s soft pornography and/or B-movie monsters, with the female characters often taking the role of “Devil-Women”. The image most often associated with his work is however slightly more tame: the face of a grinning devil with a smoking cigar clamped in its teeth. 

Coop has become popular with certain bands and labels and has provided art for several Sympathy for the Record Industry releases as well as the posters for Reverend Horton Heat, Lords of Acid, Green Day, Nirvana, Soundgarden and The Foo Fighters. 

Coop is an avid hot rod enthusiast and well-known amongst the Kustom Kulture community. He makes an annual appearance at the Mooneyes Xmas party. He released a book in 2001 called Devils Advocate: The Art of Coop.[1] In 2004 he released The Big Fat One, containing 1008 pages of collected sketches, and has recently formed a collaboration with Hot Wheels to sell a series of miniature “Coop-Customized” hot rods.
