About the Artwork:
“With this piece and other new works I’m creating I’m attempting to capture various moods and universes through flowing shapes, symmetrical lines and continuous patterns / textures. I want the figures, objects to live in a timeless environment filled with bright bold colors or occasionally limited colors depending on the mood / concept. Being that I’m still in the beginning stages of creating these new works, I’m trying to remain open to the possibilities through experimentation but understand that I want all the pieces to carry the theme of beauty, strength, fragility and intellect as the core.” – Chris B. Murray
About the Artist:
Chris B. Murray was born in a small Upstate New York town. Ambitious from an early age and knowing greater things were meant for him, he took it upon himself to seek those answers through art. He spent countless hours creating, seeking and manipulating visuals, which ultimately led him to enroll into R.I.T. (Rochester, NY) where he refined his studies and majored in illustration.
After graduating he was determined to conquer the big city and relocated to Philadelphia where he currently lives with his wife Emily, and their Boxer puppy ‘Chunk’.
