American painter born in Hollywood. He lives and work in New York city.
« I realized my mission; try and capture the narrative, the beauty and the magnetic pull of the epicenter of this modern urban city.”
The collaboration with Ikepod plays with Christopher’s vision full of joy and optimism, while His work his about street anthropology and urban geometry. Skaters in the sky is a dial created for Ikepod where we can see colored skyscrapers representing hours indexes and offering a perfect playground for skaters. The paintings call us to contemplate the characters and their destinies. The light has something magical about it. Christopher invites us to see the city trough his own eyes: strong lights, strong colors and each detail assembled to create a comprehensive whole. Like all the best components of a watch, put together to create something special. The idea behind the collaboration with Tom is, like our watches, to promote brilliant artwork that is still accessible (and within reach financially), even though it is already in public and private collections.
