ARTIST STATEMENT
The time Chris spent working with marginalized populations led him to eschew the art "establishment" in favor of public performances that allow him to interact with a broader audience and the public space outside of the art institution.

Much of his work also involves collaborations, many times with local non-profits. The collaborations usually involve mobile stages brought around San Francisco to create public events. The events are meant to highlight the groups while giving them exposure to a wide range of people throughout the city in a unique and refreshing way. Chris uses imagery from popular culture and common marketing techniques to give the viewer new information in a comfortable format that they can easily digest.
