About: Chris Fabbri

🇫🇷🇮🇹🇺🇸 Painter, b.1973 Boston. In 1999, at age 25, Chris moved to California. He’s been producing paintings in his studio for collectors worldwide. His artwork is a mixture of art-deco and the avant-garde, building galleries of one-of-a-kind collectibles.

His portraits are originally hand brushed renditions of actors and musicians, including generations of pop art. 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 in venues at events. 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.

Chris enjoys music and mixedmedia art projects. He has produced series of digital prints and nature photography inspired by the scenery of California.

Chris’s Great Grandfather, Amleto Fabbri (RIP 1887-1941), brought his family to from Italy to America in 1927, as he worked as an Italian Defense Secretary, in Boston, in the historical Sacco & Vanzetti trial. Amleto’s son, Joseph Febo, Chris’s grandfather, attended art school in Rimini, Italy, as a teenager in the mid.1920s.
