Chris Paxson was born in Atlantic City, graduated with a degree in Visual Communications from Stockton University, and still lives near the Jersey Shore. He’s made his living as a commercial artist, founding Coastline Creations in 1999, building commercial art pieces for clients such as Carnival Cruise Lines, Crayola Crayons, VH-1, and Fuse.
After a busy few years building trade show displays, props, and commercial sculptures, he decided to begin sculpting pieces on his own. He sold his first piece in 2008 through the East End Gallery in Margate, NJ, and has work on display at Arch Enemy Gallery in Philadelphia. Chris’s current series of sculptures was inspired by nature, myth, urban graffiti, and the lines in his daughter’s drawings.
When an artist makes his living bringing other people’s visions to life, it’s easy to forget the joy that comes in taking a risk, in creating something purely for yourself. These sculptures are a return to why Chris got into art in the first place.
