West Coast Images & Art 2013
Christopher Elkins is a multimedia artist based in Squamish, British Columbia. His lifelong interest in photography, nature, the outdoors, and drawing, has led Chris to the creation of an art form, fusing all of these elements into his own unique expression. All artists in general, and Chris’ art in particular, strive to create their own individual style. Although Chris’ art originates in images captured in a fraction of a second, this becomes the starting point from which Chris’ art begins. Typically, each finished piece represents approximately eighty hours of additional work in his studio. Chris divides his time between the studio and the outdoors seeking out and photographing his often elusive subjects.
In the Spring of 2002, Chris was treated for Acute Leukemia and underwent a successful stem cell transplant. A side-effect however, was Chris’ eyesight was permanently diminished. Remarkably, while he no longer enjoys the luxury of ‘normal’ eyesight, it enabled him to develop a new inner ‘vision‘, which resulted in the creation of his captivating works of art.
