Christopher Conn Askew was born in Hollywood, CA in 1970, but now he lives in San Francisco.
Christopher began drawing at an early age and never received any formal art training.
He is one of the many mysterious figures that comes out of the shadows of tattooing, profession that he has done from 1990 until 2006.
At the moment, the artist is working as an illustrator on paper with the use of watercolor, ink, graphite, gouache and gold leaf.
His creations are full of dreamlike wonder and dark atmospheres that he takes back to Soviet propaganda art, Japanese watercolours, Victorian decoration, and generally to the art déco.
