Drew Christman is an artist from Cincinnati, Ohio. As a multimedia artist that works predominantly as an illustrator and painter his process begins in the present, often depicting everyday objects, and found objects. He seeks to comment on the historical cannon of painting still life, but he does so with contemporary mediums that allude to his background as a Graffiti Artist. Heavily inspired by retro symbolism, tattoo culture, and vintage band posters he illustrates a narrative through the relationships of the objects in his work. The use of fluorescent paint brings out a brilliance through his work, but also challenges surrounding colors in his pallet, which he refers to as “forbidden color pallets”. His process is therapeutic, therefore his work captures his own personal frustrations, and comforts. Drew Christman is continuously experimenting with his techniques, subject matter, and artistic language.
