Painting is the avenue to voice my story by reaching others, who, like me, may be searching for an unspoken feeling and beauty of their own. The human experience influences me to express the feelings, thoughts and images I wish to communicate … -Chris Sullivan

About the Artist

Christopher M. Sullivan is an American modern abstract artist from the upper coastal region of Texas. 

He spent the first half of his life living under all of the influence that a coastal upbringing can afford. At a young age, his family began to support his creativity in many ways. Family members collected Chris’ artwork, often times simply drawn out on scraps of leftover supplies. His father converted his own landscape architecture drafting table into a creating platform that Chris continues to use today.

Studying artwork so intensely as a child, started him on a lifelong journey listening and feeling what it is that makes the human experience so interesting, yet challenging and beautiful. These translations have now become his oil painting expressions, intriguing others to interpret their individual feelings through the language of art.He spent a large portion of his life in the central Texas Hill Country, inspired by the energy and love within the creative people of the area. After a brief time on the Florida Gulf Coast, he now resides on the “High Road to Taos,” in the remote community of Ojo Sarco of northern New Mexico. Surrounded by the Carson National Forest, he has found his home. Always ready for the next adventure in his journey, his paintings are ever-changing and expressive of what can be shared to help others with their discovery. The enjoyment of the language of art is extremely important to Chris.
