Behold The Man
Painting - Oil
Chris Young grew up in the mountains of Utah where his exposure to the beautiful landscape fostered a love for drawing and painting. He continued his artistic studies at BYU, focusing on the figure, still-life and landscape, and completed a BFA in 1986. Young currently works in his Utah studio and is supported by his wife and four children. His paintings and prints are highly sought after and he has been the recipient of many prestigious commissions. He has been commissioned by corporations for his mural work, most notably the Nauvoo and Newport Beach temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He recently was commissioned by NIKE to paint portraits of Kobe Bryant and Lebron James for the Bejing Olympics. Young shows his work in galleries and museums across the nation.
Young always has let a kinship with the landscape. He spends many hours camping and hiking through the wild and pristine outdoors. His landscape paintings capture the ineffable grandeur and mystery of nature. His fascinations in seemingly ordinary objects � their configuration, function and design � has prompted his sensitive, highly detailed still-life paintings. A trip to his studio would reveal bird�s nests, exotic insects, dried flowers and other natural objects, which he arranges for drawings, etchings and paintings. He is highly sought after for his portraiture and in his recent work he combines the figure and landscape in a harmonious synthesis.
