About : “I have lived like a fool and wasted my time”, Guillaume Apollinaire
A Sort of Autobiography is a possible story of Waren Craghead’s life projected both back to his birth in 1970 and forward to his death in 2060. Each decade of his life is represented by a storycube as a rough self-portrait. Drawn in various styles and encoded in different ways, the cubes tell a story of transformations – of mark-making, of physical appearance and of a life seen through drawing.

Warren Craghead III is an artist and curator living in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA with his wife and two daughters. He is constantly drawing. His work explores spontaneous narratives that process and encode everyday life and the written word into discrete, pictographic, nonlinear stories that can be encountered everywhere: a sticker on a pole, a booklet in a newspaper, a postcard in the mail, an image on a website, a collage in a gallery. He has exhibited and published his work internationally, including the Xeric Grant winning Speedy, HOW TO BE EVERYWHERE and several collaborations with poets and writers, one of which was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2006. He received an MFA in 1996 from the University of Texas at Austin, and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia in 1993, and attended the Skowhegan School in 1993.
