Chris RWK was born and raised in New York. The imagery of comics and cartoons sparked his interest at an early age. Graffiti opened up his view of the art world, and fine art kept him engaged. Chris’ paintings frequently cite past conceptions of popular culture embedded in his psyche’s cache. This use of intertextuality also serves to offer a comfort or familiarity of sorts to the viewer. Chris’ works frequently reveal daily musings and people one would pass on the street without looking or thinking about twice.
