Chris: Style & Alchemy

"My style is patterned after 80's music and film culture."

Chris paints, designs and occassionally models.

Chris' website, Chris Cann Paint, showcases his acrylic paintings on mixed media canvases such as other panel, found wood and actual canvas. He describes his paintings as "post impressionism mixed with symbolism." According to Chris, "those two things combined are important because now a lot of things lack interest and meaning.  Some artists push modern and contemporary, but it's already been done, and I find it cold. It's also a bit of alchemy -- finding things and working with them--like food and art. It all comes together. And, no one should purchase anything. Things should be half found and half purchased; otherwise, it takes away the innovation."
