Chris Viau

Chris Viau’s work straddles the line between abstract and representational. This is due to his planned, yet dynamic, brush and line work. Upon first glance one sees a blend of colors and textures that reveal themselves as lush landscapes or weathered coastlines. “My favorite thing about being an artist is I can let my wild imagination show. The images that inspire me are landscapes. I feel that making landscapes is the best way to show my talent as an artist. Mostly I use watercolors for the background. I use pastel, acrylic, or colored pencils to give my artwork detail.”
