Chris Boyko is an Atlanta based artist, known for his surrealistic style. In the fall of 2014, he graduated from Kennesaw State University, receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree in Visual Art. He participates in local and international exhibitions along with charity art events in the community.
Chris explains his work by saying, “Bizarre, strange and unusual; each painting unveils the hidden reality within the mind. The subconscious is constructed like a giant web, which as a whole creates an individual. If one were to examine each individual piece, they would realize it’s composed of multiple ideas, memories and feelings which are constantly shifting. It’s this shift within our subconscious that changes our perception of reality. It’s why each of us can respond differently to a multitude of situations. Using automatic painting techniques, my mind enters a meditative state. As I begin to follow the strings of the subconscious web, the organic forms develop within the painting. One form leads to another, like a trail of thoughts. It’s as if my mind and the paint are in sync with each other. As I explore my own mind, gaining an understanding of myself; I’m also gaining an understanding of the forms.”
