Christopher Lundy was born in Seattle, Washington in 1984 and lived there for the majority of his childhood. Lundy started his journey into the art world at the age of 5 with the natural talent of being able to create beautiful works straight from his imagination.
Influenced by the works of Vincent Van Gogh and Salvador Dali, Lundy developed a unique style of his own in the Modern Illuminist technique. Modern Illuminism traces its earliest roots to Renaissance painter Matthias Grünewald and later to masters such as Rembrandt and William Turner. At its core, and at the core of every one of Lundy’s original works, Modern Illuminism is defined by the art of reflecting light through painting.
Lundy discovered his artistic style through years of experimentation with a unique combination of materials. He combines resins with various mediums to create pieces that literally leave viewers in awe.
Lundy has studied and trained in France, Spain, and Hawaii, visiting and gaining inspiration from many other travels in between. Lundy studied under French masters during his stay in Montmartre, Paris's 18th arrondissement. Lundy searches the world for his unique materials to include fair trade Indonesian tree saps, hand blown glass, diamonds, precious gemstones, micas, hand crafted paints, Diamond Dust, metals and much more. Lundy uses these unique mediums to create his art on hand stretched canvas or hardwood canvas. Through what can only be described as alchemy, Lundy then uses extreme temperatures to manipulate and blend his materials, creating the spectacular flows in his contemporary art work. This unique technique has been created and developed by Lundy and is one of a kind.
Lundy's homes in the Mountains of Colorado and on the Hawaiian Islands allows for both an adventurous lifestyle and inspiration to create spectacular art. When not in one of his studios Lundy enjoys hiking, reading a good book, traveling and exploring new places, snowboarding, and celebrating life with his wife, River.
