  • Chris Leib likes to contemplate whether the documenters of history have ever been giving us the true picture when it comes to the meaningful and momentous happenings that have occurred on our planet. Are the historical events of the western world presented to us via a machine engineered to manufacture our manipulation? With his latest ongoing series of paintings entitled ‘Eden’, Leib explores these concepts through iconic and symbolic imagery featuring a fabulous cast of astronauts and Bonobo apes. He transplants his characters into humorous scenarios, often set in historically significant surroundings, where they run amok and generally tamper with events as we know them. Painted with tremendous skill and personality, Chris’ works pull us into situations from eras gone by that pose intriguing questions and leave us wondering where the truth lies.

    Chris was born in the San Francisco Bay Area. He began his art education at The University of California at Berkeley and then later at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. After which he served an apprenticeship with the master Italian painter Roberto Luppetti. Chris’ work has been exhibited internationally.
