Christopher Clark's oil paintings radiate light through layers of intricate brushwork and metal leaf. His style includes realism, surrealism and impressionism, as he explains, "I want my art to resonate with someone, to speak to them, and reveal a part of their life they've long forgotten. Like a dream that almost slips away, but seeing my painting brings the dream into clear focus." Christopher is also the only licensed Lucasfilm and Marvel artist in Colorado, with a few of his Star Wars paintings in the collection of George Lucas himself. To get to this point in his career, Christopher had to overcome the general advice to "get a real job" that is told so often to aspiring artists. After several "real jobs" and an unsatisfying career, he made the decision to become an artist full time - at which point, Christopher says that the doors opened up for him with galleries, commissions, and a teaching mentor. Now, he’s gaining national attention and TV news coverage for his art. Christopher's talent in the arts goes beyond painting - during his time as lead guitarist for a rock band, he opened for Blue Oyster Cult and Eddie Money. He is also a national-award-winning swing dancer, and he loves tango and blues dancing.

About The Artist
Art has been my life-long identity. As a kid I would follow Bob Ross on TV with my crayons. Becoming a professional artist has been a hard-won accomplishment spanning decades. I consider myself a self-educated artist, with my studies ranging from personal training with many contemporary masters, to studying published education materials by myriad artists past and present. I have focused on classical academic art technique, with much inspiration from 19th Century art and the Impressionist movement.
I am a licensed artist with Lucasfilm and Marvel, and am very proud to have George Lucas himself as a collector. I hope my paintings here tell your story, like a blissful old memory you haven't thought about in years, or a half-forgotten dream.
