StudioChris creates art that connects people with Chicago neighborhoods.
Chris was born and raised on Chicago's southwest side, in the Clearing neighborhood. He studied graphic design and advertising at Columbia College in South Loop, and graduated in 1991. For the past 20 years, his day job has been in creative and management roles at a Fortune 500 company where his work has received national and international recognition.
In May 2011 Chris made a creative idea reality by merging his passions for art, architecture, and Chicago to create a series of posters celebrating Chicago's neighborhoods. Each poster features an iconic image that represents the neighborhood’s uniqueness and history. The posters are screen printed on earth-friendly, recycled paper to give the prints a hand-crafted feel.
StudioChris and his wife are happy to live in Andersonville.
