Christopher Sharits is a Denver, Colorado based abstract artist who explores the boundaries of acrylic paint on canvas, plexiglass, skis, and snowboards.
He utilizes paint brushes and fingers to blend, splatter, brush, pull, or “smoosh” vibrant paints. His plexiglass paintings are unique in that they are painted foreground to background with the face side down flat leaving the finished painting hidden until everything dries two days later.
“While I am inspired by the greats, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Monet, and Pollock, I find the colors of deep space and nature vibrant and inspiration.”
Having completed a two-year residency at Visual Interest in Denver, Colorado’s RiNo Art District and over 20 exhibition events in 2022, 2023 is shaping up to be even busier. Please check back often for upcoming events.
Christopher graduated “Summa Cum Laude” from Buffalo State College in Political Science and holds a Master’s in Education from American Intercontinental University and two years of graduate studies at The University of Denver’s Graduate School of International Studies. He has held executive positions in import/export logistics, high tech, and web design.
He is the son of Frances Niekerk and Paul Sharits, the filmmaker, artist, and media studies professor. Christopher currently lives with his wife Cheri near their three sons in the foothills west of Denver, Colorado.
