Christopher Peter was raised in Phoenix and received his formal art education at Arizona State University. After becoming established in the art and design communities in the Southwest, he 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 landscapes. 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.
