Christopher is a painter who works with both abstraction and figuration. He builds up his paintings by adding, erasing and collaging paint, paper and other elements together. At Villa Lena he was working on 12 small sized abstract boards – he links the series to a music album – some of these works would go on to become hits, the other ones will become an integral part of the album like its building bricks.

His paintings are informed by revision and reinterpretation – they cross-pollinate each other in either form or shape, and sometimes even by a physical transfer of the canvas to the next painting. By doing so, each works becomes connected: a sum of both the past and the future, and hence the metaphor of a music album becomes relevant. The print made at Il Bisonte references two previous works made by Chris: Untitled (Sign) and Untitled from 2011 and 2012 respectively. Printed in custom Ultramarine, the print features embossed open spaces which “block-out” the print itself.

Selected exhibition history includes: Hannah Barry Gallery, London; St. Moritz Art Masters, St. Moritz; Fokidos, Athens; PeckhamNewYorkParis, London, New York and Paris.

Many artists – both Italian and non – accepted the invitation to work at Il Bisonte. including members of the Futurist movement -
Gino Severini, Carlo Carrà, Alberto Magnelli, and such international stars as Pablo Picasso, Jacques Lipchitz, Helen Chadwick, Alexander Calder and Henry Moore.
In 1983 Il Bisonte became a non-profit Cultural Centre and opened an international school, with the focus to preserve the teaching and printing of the traditional engraving techniques.
