Ausgang was born in Point-A-Pierre, Trinidad in 1959 and was raised in Houston, Texas. He was schooled at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles and in 1990 Ausgang had his first solo show at the 01 Gallery in Hollywood where he used the vocabulary of comics to explore a variety of adult themes. By 1993 Ausgang’s artistic production consisted of customized cars, original acrylic paintings and commercial merchandise. In 1993 Ausgang’s custom painted doors from a 1936 Plymouth coupe were included in the seminal hot rod art exhibition “Kustom Kulture” at The Laguna Beach Art Museum. Ausgang also purchased paintings in thrift stores and put his own characters in the found scenes, hitting the landscapes with the vigor and fearlessness of a graffiti writer or skateboarder’s reappropriation of urban architecture. In 2009 Ausgang’s work was included in the exhibition Apocalypse Wow! at the MACRO museum in Rome Italy. In addition to exhibiting his paintings in galleries and museums, Ausgang has designed artwork for the bands and musicians David Lee Roth, the Boredoms, Perry Farrell, Sonic Boom, Martin Rev and Buckshot LeFonque; in 2010 Ausgang did the cover art for the MGMT release Congratulations, which was nominated by NME for the Best Art Vinyl of 2010. In 2011 Ausgang designed the Christmas windows for the La Rinascente Department Store in Milan. Volcom Apparel & Accessories featured Ausgang’s work in a line of surfwear. In 2014, Ausgang’s work was included in the Lowbrow Insurgence exhibition at the Harwood Museum in Taos, New Mexico, and in 2015 Ausgang curated the Kustom Kulture Milano exhibition in Milan, Italy.
