Born in 1987, artist Christopher Peter grew up in Phoenix and spent his childhood endlessly doodling in his sketchbooks. As a teenager, his dedication to his craft earned him scholarships to pursue two degrees in drawing and painting from Arizona State University, where he developed a love for abstraction and expressionism. His passion for visual art has landed his work in major exhibitions all around the world, and he is proud to have his paintings included among several esteemed international collections.
Christopher’s work is often described as a celebration of brilliant color, movement, and light. His unique canvases are filled with complex layers of paint which are punctuated by mixed media elements like handmade papers, silkscreens, and collage. Fans of his work describe it as a positive and enlightening experience of something beautiful and honest, and most importantly, of something new.
“An elderly man, a stranger at the time, once told me that he could see the color of my aura, and that it is gold. I smile when I remember that moment, and I think that color describes me very well. I find inspiration everywhere I look. To me, life is an infinite spectrum of color and light that surrounds us and moves within us, and this vitality is what drives my work.”
