Alex Duggan

Alex Duggan is a visual artist living and creating here in Portland, OR. He received his BA in Fine Arts from Humboldt State University in 2012, with a concentration in painting. Predominantly an illustrator, Alex takes from his daily doodles to bring to life a sprawling, vibrant world of personable creatures and storybook mysticism.


The entirety of Alex’s working career has been spent within special-needs residential care, youth foster facilities, and adult day-program services, and he considers these audiences to be a major driving force behind his creative influence and output. Other artistic influences include Gustav Klimt, Theodore Geisel, and John Tenniel, among many others.


Thank you for taking the time to read, and viewing my work!

FAQs for Artists

What is your gallery traffic like?
Being as the gallery is located in our float center, we get a lot of crossover foot traffic.  Aside from the gallery, we run 1200 floats a month, and are located in the heart of the SE on Hawthorne Blvd. The shop has large windows facing the street, so the art is visible 24/7 from the sidewalk.
What mediums do you accept in the gallery?
Anything that can be hung vertically by our wire/hook track system. Please do not include any fresh/wet oil pieces.
What is your commission rate?
We only charge a 5% commission!! This basically just covers credit processing charges.
What about the original piece?
Along with the process of being a gallery exhibitor, you will be given 4 float sessions in exchange for one original float inspired piece after completing your float sessions.  It will also be hung in the gallery for the duration of the month. After your month is over the original, float inspired piece will belong to Float On to be appreciated for ages to come.  
What is your transport policy?
The gallery artist is completely responsible for all transport of gallery pieces.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Yes, there is a basic contract involved, but it is painless.
