Christian's multi disciplinary art practice begins with his love for the drawing line—trusting the first line of intuition, vulnerability and "gut reaction”. His visual language with drawing, painting, collage and sculpture is driven by curiosity and the unpredictable outcome of making. His sensitivity and obsession for color and shape help construct the visual currents that transmit the narrative from image to image. Christian's body of work includes his current individual studio practice and his shared Clayton Brothers collaborative that spanned 20 years: 1996-2016. His collaborative work has mounted ten solo exhibitions in galleries and museums in the US, Europe and Asia. Christian lectures nationally in Europe and Asia. His work is in museums and foundations; public, corporate, and private collections around the world including the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Saatchi Gallery. His work has been featured in publications such asArt In America,Juxtapoz Magazine,Flash Art,Hi-Fructose Magazine,New York Times,Los Angeles Timesand theHuffington Post,The New YorkerandRollingStone. In 2015 he was awarded "The Great Teacher Award," from the Art Center College of Design, where he taught for more than 20 years. His teaching credentials also include Cal State University Northridge and Otis College of Design.
