I spend a lot of time thinking about ideas for artwork. Some of those ideas are clear to me right away, and end up becoming paintings very fast. Others are not so clear at first, and slowly come together in my mind over time. This collection is made up of the ideas that I've spent the most time thinking about over the past couple years. The title of the collection is "Some Things Considered". By that I mean, of all the things there are in life to consider for artistic subject matter. I spend most of my time only considering a few. All of the pieces in the show are made with acrylic spray, acrylic brush paint, and acrylic paint markers.
I'm a 32 year old artist from Orlando Florida. I started tattooing during my senior year of high school in 2002 and have spent the majority of my time since then tattooing in Orlando. I began to focus on painting in 2011 after i tried my hand at spray painting. That inspired me to really start paining murals and canvases with all of my free time. I've been doing various art shows since then showcasing both. Recently, in May of 2015 I opened a private tattoo/art studio in Orlando Called The East with my friend and fellow artist Steve Roberts.

His art still does not stop there. With two self-published art books, four comic books and a slew of mural jobs for state side Pizza Company Mellow Mushroom and music sharing company Spotify, Chris continues to create and make new art daily.
