Christopher Box Artist


Being an artist runs in my family. The need to create and express myself is a part of me as my sense of humor. It’s always a little off and maybe more than a little bit off color. But at the heart of it, what I create is meant to inspire and spark conversation. 

I frequently get asked what “style” my art is. My immediate response has always been that it is more of a lifestyle than a style. I don’t make art because I want to... I make art because I have to. 

A few of my signature “moves” is my innate ability to layer color and movement in a way that is intended to evoke an emotional response. I work a lot with texture, my actual hands and fingertips and even makeup brushes. (I love the way they whip and swirl paint)

I am a self taught artist and self proclaimed renaissance man. I work mainly with acrylic, however, I love exploring new ways to express myself. I have recently incorporated silk screening and water colors into my work. I love working with my hands and have even stretch my own canvases sometimes. 

Many artist work years to be able to create a style or look that is uniquely theirs. I feel lucky that my “style” has always been there. Over the past 15  years I have definitely grown, developed and curated that “feel”. 

I don’t paint things. I paint how the world makes me feel. I want people to either love or hate what I produce. I believe Boy George said it best - it’s better to be looked at than looked over. As a creator and an artist I always give myself the room I need to grow. It’s ok to make ugly things. It’s not ok to sit on the sidelines and not do anything.
