About Gallery Provocateur: Award Winning Gallery Provocateur exhibits a genre of work influenced by illustration, fantasy, subculture, comic books, pop culture imagery and the feminine mystique. We represent a mix of emerging and career artists with an emphasis on cultivating new talent and creating an environment where artists can further develop their work. We are a not for profit gallery due to our dissatisfaction with the conventional approach of galleries charging high percentages of their artists work while offering the same in an uninviting, stark environment. Gallery works exhibited are primarily figurative with a strong composition. The unconventional approach has helped shape our gallery’s commitment to offering our space as one that encourages exploration and offering art forms which are massively underappreciated. Gallery Provocateur remains focused on maintaining its mission of community, and commitment to providing our artists with a nurturing arena for experimentation and growth. The gallery has won the Best of Chicago Reader Award consistently from 2010-2012.
