Chris’ art is rooted in the skateboard culture he has been part of since a young boy, as early as 1986, when he would draw his own board graphics.

This position has given him the chance to act as a bridge between that spiritual movement and less typically “conscious” art scenes he is part of, like the street art, and skate art movements. Though he appreciates all scenes he is associated with, he wants to break boxes and manifest the “Oneness” he believes is the love consciousness beneath it all.
