Christopher has been an artist since early childhood, when he would watch Bob Ross on PBS and mimic the famed oil painter’s art with crayons. He considers himself a self-educated artist, with his studies ranging from personal training with contemporary masters, to classical academic art technique, with much inspiration from 19th Century art and the Impressionist Movement. Christopher lived in Italy for a time, immersing himself in Italian culture and art, which continues to influence his painting. His fan base has grown considerably since his return to the US, gaining the attention of Lucasfilm and Marvel Fine Art, which both signed him as an officially licensed artist in June 2016 and immediately published a variety of his paintings. Christopher is Lucasfilm’s #1 selling artist, and very proud to have George Lucas himself as a collector. Lucas insists on having first right of refusal on Christopher’s future Star Wars originals. Christopher has been Lucasfilm’s featured artist at 2017 Star Wars Celebration, and 2018 will be Christopher’s third year as Lucasfilm and Marvel’s featured artist at San Diego Comic Con. Christopher’s painting skills are not his only talent in the arts. He has won several national swing dance championship competitions, and also studies tango and blues dancing. He has played guitar since the age of 12, and during his time as lead guitarist for a rock band, he opened for Blue Oyster Cult and Eddie Money, as well as headlined “the Whisky A Go Go” and “The Roxy” in Hollywood. Christopher has played trombone since high school, and for the last 20 years has played with all-trombone Christmas band in Orange County, California called the Balboa Bachelors, with whom he has played for the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, Someone Cares Soup Kitchen, and the Hoag Memorial Hospital Cancer Center, as well as received a proclamation from the Mayor of Newport Beach for Service to the Community. At age 39, Christopher continues to gain national attention, while remaining humble in the continuing effort to grow and improve his artwork. He currently resides in Denver, Colorado.
