MEET FEATURED ARTIST, CHRIS VANCE
Fueled by daily experiences, emotions and ideas, Vance is able to transform a blank canvas into an interpretation of himself.
Art is his medium of expression and Vance refers to art as his personal diary. Using acrylic charcoal, spray paint or graffiti markers, he allows his feelings to drive the piece on a subconscious level. Vance works on wood, paper and finishes each piece with a coat of lacquer.
The featured artwork is inspired by Houston and showcases the city’s vibrant atmosphere and diverse communities. Vance was influenced by the exciting and inclusive city that is Houston.
The featured artwork is inspired by graffiti, cartoons, the skateboarding culture, and trains. Vance combined his signature style, and Downtown Houston’s ambiance to create a meaningful and fun piece.
