Bio

Chris Simonite is an artist, musician and cartoonist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 
A 
true 
multi‐media
 artist,
 Simonite’s
 works
 focus
 on 
issues
 of 
modern
 masculinity 
and
 belief 
that 
utilize
 his
 talents
 in
 visual
 arts
 and
 music
 as
 well 
as
 in 
voice
 acting.
 Simonite’s
 irreverent 
works 
poke
 fun 
at,
 among
 other
 things,
 religion
 and
 radical
 feminism 
while
 constantly 
deriding 
modern
 masculinity.
 In
 addition 
to
 this, 
Simonite
 never 
hesitates 
to 
take
 stinging
 jibes 
at
 his
 own persona. In September 2011 he made his major gallery debut with his solo exhibition entitled Mansongs, at Gallery 101, an Artist Run Centre in Ottawa.

In addition to this, Simonite’s cartoons 
have appeared in the University of Manitoba student newspaper the Manitoban and were distributed across Canada by the Canadian University press from 2005 – 2007. They have also been published
 in 
diverse 
publications
 such 
as
 Canadian 
Dimension
 Magazine 
and cbc.ca. 
Simonite debuted his webcomic, Gorilla in the Midst in January 2013. It can be seen at gorillainthemidst.com.
