Detroit-born and Canton resident Chris Dragan is pleased to share his artwork with hopes of sparking feelings both nostalgic and novel. Emerging from a family of artists, and influenced by modern and classic iconic images, his goal is to present familiar subjects from a different angle or through a completely new set of eyes.Chris’ style spans pop-art, abstract and bricolage using diverse elements with, as he describes, “hints of wabi-sabi” or acceptance of imperfection. Subject matter typically centers on sport, music, gaming, and other pop culture and occasionally on aspects of his past experience living and working in Japan. Chris uses a variety of media, including acrylics, oils, spray paint, watercolor and compressed chalk. Some pieces incorporate pages from vintage books, newspapers, and other literary sources.
