Christopher Gatelock is a professional, award winning, and published multi-media artist. His formal creative art training reaches back to the 1970’s when he was introduced to basic fine art principals, fine art film photography, and darkroom procedure at Mississippi College. He later expanded his education and training in the arts at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, Colorado.
Christopher is well-traveled having lived in many of the states in the America, as well as internationally in Japan, Panama, Brazil, England, and now recently relocated near Glasgow, Scotland. His explorative lifestyle has afforded him many opportunities for producing multi-media art in the areas of landscapes, architecture, concept creations and specialty portraiture.
In all of Christopher’s work his style is based in surrealism in which he purposely repels from what would be considered by most as normal, common, or ordinary. He endeavors in all of his art to create strikingly beautiful imagery that insights the soul and moves the viewer to an imaginary place both visually and spiritually where a fantasy world becomes reality, if only for a short time.
Christopher’s art reflects the imagery of his own fantasy world where he employs complete freedom to create his own brand of beauty.
