Christopher Peter was raised in Phoenix and received his formal art education at Arizona State University. He joined galleries across the US and presented his first international exhibition in 2017 at Miami’s Art Basel.
Well known for using unconventional materials, Christopher’s work focuses on painting figures and floral elements. Combining and blurring the boundaries between these disciplines, a personal narrative is created between the viewer and the work that hints at the artists’ ultimate goal of using painting to explore the relationship between ourselves and how we experience our surroundings. As an extension of this, Christopher’s work often includes handmade papers, vintage roadmaps, and repurposed book pages in addition to acrylic and oil paints.
Each piece of art is painted, varnished, and stretched completely by hand at the artist's studio in SOWA, in the heart of Boston's gallery and design district. Every work of art is completely archival and will remain true to its original aesthetic intention for generations.
