Chris Drange

Chris Drange is known for his explorations of social media and pop-culture. His work incorporates the traditional method of court painting by illustrating modern-day influencers. Through depiction of self-identification around the mood and style of social media culture, Drange creates another lens of reality that is encapsulated in the canvas.


In the past, worshiping relics promised healing. Today, however, we no longer have healing problems, but rather validity problems.
