Paint for Peace was a spontaneous grass-roots community project to revitalize a boarded-up downtown ABQ resulting from the Pandemic-related economic downturn and civil unrest while promoting peace. The effort was organized by OT Circus Gallery.
In this mural, colorful and playful game references are embedded within a matrix of Christian's signature floral, heart, star, and hummingbird elements. This mural is wrapped around the entire building. This was a solo project in created in conjunction with MuralFest.
In 2019 Christian mentored students from the Media Arts Charter School as part their studio art internship. They developed and painted this 6x48 foot mural on the wall in the parking lot behind St. John’s Thrift Store on Central Avenue and 14th in Albuquerque. The students choose the motifs, which Christian incorporated into the overall design. He then supervised the students who did the painting.
Christian contributed this 25-foot section of unique floral elements to Melinda Forward’s Kindness Club International mural project.
This riverway mural featured more than 250 animals and their habitat in a 250 foot-long mural. This was created in 2018 in collaboration with Story Lab Inc.
This was painted as part of 508 Warehouse’s Mural Fest during the summer of 2017. The interlocking flowers and hearts were painted freehand during the festival and represent the creative garden of Albuquerque’s spirit. The mural is half a block long with the height varying from three-to-five-feet tall on the concrete block and steel mesh wall of the parking lot on the corner of 4th and Gold.
This was commissioned by EPC for their fitness facility. The entire wall was approximately 70 feet by 8 feet high, roughly divided into three areas separated by windows. The concept was first sketched on paper and the drawn freehand and painted on the wall with recycled house paint and represents the concepts of dedication to community, devotion to the body, and challenge to heal.
