Painter, b.1973 Boston. In 1999, at age 25, he moved to California, producing paintings in the studio for collectors worldwide. His artwork is a mixture of art-deco and the avant-garde, with various sizes and styles, originals and renditions, building galleries of one-of-a-kind collectibles.
Most of his painting commissions are portraits of actors and musicians, including generations of pop art renditions. His painting series includes abstracts, cartoons, figures, landscapes and still lives. The surface of his paintings are varnished, in loose brushwork, with acrylics and oils onto canvas, cardboard, metal, paper, vinyl and wood. Some pieces are small intimate frame sized paintings and some are wall size.
Over the years, Chris has volunteered to showcase his artwork at many fundraisers and events in certain venues. He has painted a few murals around the Bay Area. In 2019, he painted a mural for the playground of Aquatic Park in Berkeley. In 2016, he painted a mural for the MilkTeaLab in Pleasant Hill. In 2012, he painted a mural of Venice Italy for PizzaOliva in Walnut Creek.
