About the Artist

Christopher Lovely was born in Haverhill, MA and grew up with an insatiable desire to create; trying his hand at drawing, painting, photography and sculpture.

When he began his formal arts education at Montserrat College of Art, he focused on realist painting. Upon graduation, he was granted a scholarship to study at the prestigious New York Academy of Art, founded in-part by "Andy Warhol":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_warhol, and focused on training in figurative art through a rigorous study of anatomy, art history, sculpture, painting and drawing. Chris studied under painters Vincent Desiderio, Jack Beal, Martha Erlebacher and Wade Schuman.

Although occasionally investigating still lifes and landscapes, Chris’s work primarily uses oil on canvas and the human figure to explore emotion. His work is shown across the Northeastern United States, including the Windham New York Fine Arts Gallery, the McQuaid Gallery, Newburyport Arts Association, and the Bowery Gallery in NYC. His work is now part of private and corporate collections throughout the United States.

Chris is currently a member of the Fine Arts Faculty at Merrimack College. He previously taught painting workshops through the Newburyport Arts Association and lectured on the 1990 Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum Heist. Chris also participated in a number of charity art auctions in Massachusetts.
