About Christopher


Christopher Mir was born in 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland. He received a BA in painting and anthropology from Marlboro College in 1992 and an MFA in painting and printmaking from Boston University School for the Arts in 1997.

His paintings present a world populated by mythic figures, creatures, machines, and fragments of ambiguous forms. These elements are often positioned within idealized landscapes in dream-like circumstances. His intention is that the viewer experiences a series of paradoxical relationships and unsettling juxtapositions.

His painting style is relatively tight and refined, but the final products are often emotionally evocative. The narratives running through them are replete with dichotomies, such as mystical versus physical, spiritual versus secular, and the primal versus the futuristic.

Mir lives and works in Hamden, Connecticut.
