Christopher Clark has been passionate about telling stories through art since he was a child. Using crayons and paper, he would mimic painters he saw on public access TV shows. Through years of training and exposure to many other arts, including music and dance, Christopher evolved into the masterful storyteller he is today.
His travels, inspiration, and education have taken him all around the world, including Italy, France, Germany, Greece, Japan, and Mexico. The life, color, and texture brimming from these cultures profoundly bleed into Christopher’s works. His award-winning paintings have been fervently collected and admirably shown in private and corporate collections around the world.
I love capturing the drama of an everyday moment that could have happened down the street from my house, or on the shore of a vast foreign continent. I try to make each one of my works a living memory to share with others. Pouring these stories into a single painting is both exhilarating and heartbreaking. But I guess that’s what happens when you open yourself up to the world.
