Christopher WrightBiography: Biography for Christopher Wright Born November 19, 1974 in London Ontario The Son of Larry & Janette Wright I discovered my love for drawing in Grade 2, often drawing in my spare time. In grade 4 my public teacher had us keep a journal in which we had to draw or write everyday. I've always believed practice is the talent. My drawing development that year was proof for I still use tricks I learned that year. Roughly around age 12 I was making my money painting tiny lead miniatures and selling them. They were finely moulded miniatures -Ral Partha and Citadel Miniatures; once I adorned them with paint, they sold weekly. It was due to this obsession that I learned the qualities that allow me to paint the ultra fine details that I am known for. I went to Medway High School located in Arva for grades 9-11, clashing with all of my art teachers there. The school made me see a psychiatrist due to an interesting story I wrote to entertain my friends. Then the school destroyed the story and erased it from the network: I'd love to show you all now. I have mostly very bad memories of this school and wouldn't recommend it. Westminster High school for grades 12 and OAC, and was encouraged in my arts there, creating political works that the principal would come to view; before it was me visiting the principal. Recommended for BealArt, and what a great place it was. Two years of study encompassing Life Drawing, Painting, Lithography, Etching, Textiles, Animation, Film, Photography, ceramics, Commercial design and Art History. Year End show sales showed me the business sides of art. Mad hours of practice. I do a minimum of 2 hours a day in regards to practice and or creating. Practice practice practice. I could teach anyone what I know but with practice they could do the same. It's a fancy idea to think that I was born with all my talent but I know thats not the case. I watched as my artwork progressed faster than those who didn't practice. It's all a practice race.

The gallery (while being a permanent Chris Wright retailer) grew to three locations with about 22 volunteers. I turned it into a piece of art itself, hearing about the stories that were occuring with vistors when I wasn't there, always a slice of crazy weirdness. 1997 - The Green Tomato Restaurant - They also have a very good vegetarian menu. 1997 - S.A. Cafe Restaurant - I designed the storefront and look of this fancy place and it hosted a full supply of Chris Wright for several months. 1997-2000 St. Pauls Cathedral Art Exhibition. The largest annual art show in London. Over 100 artists. I love trying to show off, I never have any idea of what to expect. From the Kitch to the Wonderfull.
