Born in Minnesota in the late 1960’s, Lane spent these formative years inspired by regional artists Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Roy Lichtenstein. His early teenage years were spent in Cairo, Egypt where his work was influenced by the great architecture, sculpture, symbolism, hieroglyphs and the expressive colors used in their paintings. Christopher returned to the States and pursued his art degree at Eastern New Mexico University. Christopher has now made his home in South Carolina where he continues to use fantastic imagery to turn his life experiences into visual stories. He is inspired by surrealist artist Salvador Dali and Hieronymus Bosch. Christopher’s work has been shown in galleries across the United States and as far abroad as New South Wales, Australia.
His work is currently featured in a 30th Anniversary group exhibition in the SC State Museum and he has a solo exhibition at Kyo Gallery opening May 10, 2019.”
