Bringing us multicultural progressive realism, Chris Fabbri celebrates the present and revives the past.
Continuing to draw and paint portraits for decades, applying oil and acrylic paint to canvas, paper and wood, inspired to focusing on photo shoots of California.
Christopher Fabbri, born 1973 Chelsea, MA.
In the Summer of 1999, at age 25, Chris moved to California. He was then elected as a Best Seller with PaintingsDirect,Inc. by USA TODAY. He received commissions and awards for volunteering with East Bay Artists Guild, CA. In the Summer of 2014, he was elected as a Top5 East Bay California Painter by AliveEastBay.com magazine.
The surface of his paintings are varnished with acrylics and oils,
often using pastels on canvas, cardboard, metal, paper, primed wood and random found objects.
His portrait paintings are of actors and musicians, including generations of pop art. Some are small intimate frame sized paintings and some are wall sized works on canvas and cotton sheets as scenic props and back drops. Chris also builds series of nature photography inspired by the scenery of Northern California. Now in his mid.40s, he paints series of themed art, selling to art collectors worldwide. Sherri and Chris have been living together in California since the Summer of 2001.
