It is not to early to find the perfect Portland holiday gift for your friends and family. Our good friend and respected Portland artist Chris Haberman is offering custom made, 8″ x 8″ portraits painted on recycled wood to PDX Pipeline readers for only $40 ($10 more with a frame) this holiday season. All you need is a photo of yourself, loved one, pet, butcher, famous person, and Chris will paint it!

Chris Haberman is a working writer, painter, muralist, curator and musician, native to Portland, Oregon. All of his artwork is created from recycled objects, found material from the streets and alleyways of his hometown. A discarded cabinet door or table top quickly becomes the backdrop for an integrated puzzle-poem of figures and text, focusing on subjects like people, politics, the region, pop-culture, media, music, film and literature.

Portland Mayor Sam Adams said in 2009 that ¬Å“Chris is the hardest working artist in Portland.¬Â In Jan, 2010, Chris was a feature artist for Oregon Art Beat on Oregon Public Broadcasting and was awarded ¬Å“Portland Artist of the Year¬Â for Barfly Magazine.  In Jan, 2011, he and fellow artist Jennifer Mercede won a national artist contest in Las Vegas, competing with artists' from10 other cities.

In the Fall of 2011, he completed a 219 wood panel album reproduction for an office mural for record label Kill Rock Stars, produced a 100 work show of ¬Å“The Peoples History of Oregon¬Â at Littman and White Gallery at Portland State University and began planning a 80 foot mural about ¬Å“The History of Hawthorne Blvd.¬Â for 50th SE Hawthorne on the Eagles Fraternal Lodge.

Chris is only making 200 of these custom portraits so be sure and place your order early. You can do this by visiting our purchase links here:

    I own several pieces of Chris Haberman’s art and can attest that he is talented! This is a fantastic deal! Get one (or several) before they sell out!

    It isn’t very often that you have the chance to pay such a nominal fee to commission a portrait from a talented artist.

    What adds to Chris’ amazing talent for painting is the way in which he has devoured, digested, and regurgitated the English language. He’s real, raw, compassionate, provocative, eloquent, obnoxious, brilliant, harsh, and kind.

    What a kick ass gift for yourself, or for someone you love.

    “…You can do this by visiting our purchase area here.”

    Help!? What does that mean? Where is this purchase area? Sorry if I’m missing something obvious – but I’m not seeing it.

      Sorry. Wording was confusing. I have changed it and edited post so purchasing info is at top and bottom of the post. Thanks!

    Hate to be difficult, but can I order one larger portrait of myself, my husband and my daughter?

  5. Amy November 7, 2011 at 11:17 am #

    Can I commision a larger couples portrait?

  6. Stephanie November 10, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

    Agreed with the above… can it be two people or is that a wholly separate cost/not included in this deal? I’d absolutely LOVE to get a couple’s portrait.

    I bought one on Oct 31 – Do I need to send him a photo? or email? What are the details? Thanks!

    • pdxpipeline November 17, 2011 at 2:55 pm #

      You should have been redirected to that page of info. Not sure what happened, but emailing you now.

    • pdxpipeline November 17, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

      Also, I have no record of a purchase from you/this email, so maybe it didn’t go through and that is why you don’t have the info.

  8. Mike November 17, 2011 at 6:32 pm #

    Can you send me his contact info? I have a few questions before ordering…

  9. Rachel November 19, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    I’m SO excited for this!! I already have two pieces of his (one in collaboration with Jason Brown), and I want to keep collecting… what an amazing opportunity. I’m on it.

    I just purchased 4 framed paintings. What do I need to do to get the photos to the artist. I am thrilled about having these done. I have see his art around town and was waiting for an occasion to buy one. Yipeeee for me!!!

    OH SHIT! What an effing DEAL! Haberman ROCKS… TAKE advantage of his awesome deal.

  13. Sydney December 9, 2011 at 3:58 pm #

    I purchased a framed painting. Where do I send the pictures/instructions to? I am a huge fan of Chris and have a number of his pieces. Cannot wait to further add to my collection!

  14. Scott December 9, 2011 at 10:08 pm #

    Hmm…did the paypal thing and got the transaction receipt, but no redirection to a page containing photo submission info.

    • pdxpipeline December 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm #

      I have emailed you the info.

  15. Terri December 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm #

    Just read comments below, I wasn’t redirected to get my info. Help!

    • pdxpipeline December 12, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

      Just emailed you about this with all the info.

    • pdxpipeline December 12, 2011 at 1:03 pm #

      Some people don’t have redirects allowed in their browsers, which is likely what happened. I have emailed you the info and link.

  16. Tara Farstvedt December 12, 2011 at 9:06 pm #

    How can I contact Chris to do a painting of my family? I know these are sold out but would like to do something different?!?

  17. Dille December 12, 2011 at 9:46 pm #

    Maybe I don’t have redirects either. I bought two, and am not sure how to send pics….

  18. pdxpipeline December 13, 2011 at 9:43 am #

    @Tara & @Dille – send me an email at [email protected] and I’ll help coordinate.
