Chris is a professional artist based out of Southeast Michigan (Ann Arbor/Detroit area). He has always enjoyed being creative, especially making chalk art in the driveway and sidewalks outside his home. In 2011, Chris was introduced to his first street painting festival in St. Joseph, MI. Having discovered a whole new avenue for his love of art, he started drawing in events around the country including in Ohio, California, Tennessee, Florida and more. In 2014 he founded the Dexter Chalk the Block Festival which now brings in talented artists from around the Midwest who share their skills with the Southeast Michigan community.
In addition to street painting, Chris has done large murals, paintings and published several coloring books that incorporate his unique 3D drawing style.
