Lives and works in New York, USA
Christopher Myers (b. 1974, New York, USA) is an artist, writer and award-winning illustrator. He credits his appreciation of the importance of images to observing the objects and photographs his parents would bring home from auctions and flea markets: “little histories;” “other people’s memories that get left behind.” His own family images have had quite an impact, as well – as in a black-and-white photograph of his grandfather with a telling smile on his face. Myers has made his career working with his hands creating his own images in collage, photography, woodcuts, installation, video, film, painting, sculpture and drawing. A graduate of Brown University, New York, Myers’ art has been showcased at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York); MoMA PS1 (New York); Pearl Lam Gallery (Shanghai); San Art (Vietnam), to name but a few. Myers currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
