Christian was born in the United States but has also lived in Colombia. He has attended schools such as Parsons (New York City), The University of the Arts (PHILA) and Drexel University (PHILA) and has a BFA in graphic design. He now lives in South Florida and has exhibited with other Latinamerican artists. About his work: I have always strived to test my skills, imagination and patience with each painting/project I engage in. I enjoy having contrasting styles within my work. I feel that the use of these styles helps me to develop my sense of color, form, and composition. Most of my work requires a lot of time (preparatory black & white sketches, color studies). However other paintings are done directly onto the canvas without any sketches.
