Chris Uphues on Tuesday June 2, 2009
We are really excited to have artist Chris Uphues participating in Works In Progress on Tuesday June 2, 2009 from 11am- 7pm. Be sure to stop by and see his work and chat with him about his process throughout the day.
Chris Uphues' paintings and drawings are concerned with a distinct visual vocabulary, embracing pop culture, graffiti, video games, comics, and all things Japanese. His work is included in major art collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. An Illinois native, Uphues received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and now lives and works in Brooklyn.
Check back for Chris' answers to the WIP Blog's questions about his process.
