Engaged in dialog with the Pop Art movements of both Great Britain and the United States, Christopher Brown draws on culturally iconic imagery and reuses personal graphic motifs. Primarily figurative in nature, his work walks a line between representational and abstract art, incorporating his own photographs and recollections, images from movies and other media, and natural and manmade landscapes.
Brown received his MFA from the University of California, Davis, where he was influenced by then-professors Wayne Thiebaud and Manuel Neri. Brown himself has since served as a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and at the California College of the Arts in Oakland. A variety of museums include his work in their collections, such as the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. He currently lives and works in Berkeley and is represented by the John Berggruen Gallery in San Francisco.
