Christopher C. Curtis was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on August 28th, 1981. He took an interest in drawing at an early age and decided to pursue an art career while in high school. After high school Chris moved to San Francisco where he attended the Academy of Art University. While taking classes at the Academy he gained an interest in the photo-real style of painting and pursued a similar style in his drawings. In 2004 Chris received a BFA from the Academy.
Since then Chris has had his work in several group and solo shows throughout the United States. In 2015 he won the Acker Award in San Francisco for visual arts.
In 2013 he met his wife, Whitney Fairhurst, and they moved to Hendersonville together in 2015. They both shared an interest in art which resulted in multiple collaborations. Whitney’s main focus being in making dolls added a three-dimensional aspect to Chris’ drawings. They both continue to make art separately and together while showing their work at Woolworth.
