Piece description from the artist
Now you are in a dream state and this character comes to you in your dreams with a choice: you must either stay
in the "Dream" or wake up and live in the "real" world. The figure on the bottom right of this piece represents you the
dreamer; with the youth and innocence of a child, you are ready to accept the choice of the dream and create a world
of your own.
Christopher Colon graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in graphic design. While continuing his studies, he started a T-shirt company called "bS Shirts" with another artist where he created original designs from his sketchbooks. He used the T-shirt as a platform to sell and display his artwork, and sold them on the streets of New York City.
His latest project focuses on taking the attention off of the T-shirts he prints on, by placing more attention on the designs themselves in a project called "Throne Of Dreams". Each design tells a story that takes the viewer on a journey through his experiences while dreaming.
Chris currently lives and works in Harlem, New York.
