Chris Valentine is an artist & illustrator from Johannesburg. His interest in image making began at a young age, with obsessive sketches of Asterix & Obelix, comic book superheroes and with the making of action figures from paper, cardboard and whatever else he could find. His work explores classical and contemporary painting through the lens of urban culture. Valentine is establishing a solid following for his bold portraits through which he questions the formation of identity in the age of the internet.
