March – April:  CHRIS DRAGAN – Canton, MI

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.

  All work available for purchase. Please contact 248-344-0497 with questions.
