Times Square - Oil on Canvas. Born in Hollywood, California, 1952, Tom Christopher studied art at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In 1981 Christopher moved to New York City and since then the Big Apple remains the central subject of his art. The New York skyscrapers, yellow cabs, bike-riders and city wanderers captured in Christopher’s paintings are constructed to reveal the distinctive city lights, consisting of a mixture of natural sunlight
and artificial neon illumination. Christopher’s use of vivid colors and expressive brushstrokes create a great sense of the city’s dynamic movement and its natural vibrant ambience. Although Christopher’s painting style is primarily representational, the artist playfully deforms some images by applying unnatural colors, unfixed focal point, and tilted lines. This deliberate deconstruction reveals the uncertainty and tension that a fast-moving metropolitan city holds beneath its bright outlook.
Christopher’s artworks are held in numerous prestigious collections including the Museum of the City of New York, CBS Inc, and Time Warner Inc, along with other notable independent collectors such as Mr. Rudolph Giuliani and Mrs. Laura Bush. During the 1990s, Christopher was commissioned to create large mural paintings at Rockefeller Center and Times Square. His painting of the World Trade Center created soon after September 11, 2001, resonated strongly with the American people. As a result, Christopher’s painting was purchased by the Museum of the City of New York. His position as a leading American painter was further enhanced when the Butler Museum of American Art held his solo exhibition in 2008.
