Event Description
Jim Riswold (American, born 1957) is a highly regarded Portland, Oregon photographer and former creative director at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland. Born and raised in Seattle, Riswold studied at the University of Washington, where he received BA degrees in communications, philosophy, and history. In 1984 he joined the advertising firm of Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, and during his 20 plus years there, was responsible for legendary advertising campaigns for Nike featuring Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Bo Jackson, and Tiger Woods, among others.

In 2000 Riswold was diagnosed with leukemia, and after surviving the disease for five years, left Wieden+Kennedy to become a full-time artist, creating staged photographs and other mixed media works that poke fun at taboo figures such as Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Mao Zedong, General George Custer, Vladimir Lenin, and Kim Jong Un, among others. Over the past decade, Riswold has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the region and his photographs can be found in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, among many others.
