This event has ended.

Born in Hollywood, California, 1952, Tom Christopher studied art at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In 1981 Christopher moved to New York City. The urban setting remains the central subject of his art. The New York skyscrapers, yellow cabs, bike-riders and city wanderers captured in Christopher’s paintings are constructed to reveal the distinctive city lights, consisting of a mixture of natural sunlight and artificial neon illumination. Christopher’s use of vivid colors
and expressive brushstrokes create a great sense of the city’s dynamic movement and its natural vibrant ambience.
Although Christopher’s painting style is primarily representational, the artist playfully deforms some images by applying unnatural colors, unfixed focal point, and tilted lines. This deliberate deconstruction reveals the uncertainty and tension that a fast-moving metropolitan city holds beneath its bright outlook.
