Tom Christopher is a classically trained draughtsman. He received a BFA from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California.
In 1987, NYC was a dark city, crime ridden and gripped by fear. But, as he put it : "One day walking around Times Square, the clouds cleared and I had an epiphany of sorts.
The city exploded in a blaze of expressionistic colors with the brilliant laser white light sculpting the buildings, cabs, messengers and scurrying figures. At once I realized my mission; try and capture the narrative, the beauty and the magnetic pull of the epicenter of this modern urban city."
Now his subject matter is largely focused on the streets of New York. But calling him a New York painter would be as much a mistake indeed, this theme is universal as his paintings have found a following in Europe (France, Germany) and in Asia, notably Japan.
