About the Book
Chicago Paused offers a glimpse into everyday Chicago
Chris originally from Omaha, first began working in art over 12 years ago, had no prior training in art and is completely self taught.. He started out innocently enough with a children's spiral splatter paint kit. The problem however was the inks that came with it did not produce the same images as what was on the box cover. Not one to give up came at it with more industrial paints and out came images more like the box and on a trek he went. Over the years the repertoire has moved on to the more serious sides of photography, painting and collage. Now he produces collages that combine painting, photography and anything else he can get in the computer. His photo's have graced book covers for Northwestern University and Notre Dame and have been featured in The Chicago Reader, Chicago Public Radio, Gapers Block, Mun2 and numerous other publications.
