with Movies in 555's Red Room

Thursday's View is from 7 to 10pm Thursday December 11, 2008

As a young artist, Christian McKenzie is always looking to create original and bold pieces. He has always let his pens guide him and his art speak for him; his work encompassing many styles and mediums. He is a firm believer that one picture can say more than any phrase. He does not believe in constricting himself by allowing all of his artwork to have the same look or feel, instead he challenges himself to create something new to himself in a way that may not be familiar to him.

As a child he preoccupied himself with pencils and crayons, he started to truly develop his art at the age of twelve when he started focusing more on the intricacies of his skill. At fourteen he won Grand prize in Road & Track magazine’s annual kid’s automotive design contest. At sixteen taking ceramics he caught the attention of the art department at Henry Ford Community College who gave him a grant to attend that years national ceramics convention NCECA in Indianapolis. He continues to grow in his art developing into as many different styles, aspects, and mediums as he can think to utilize. Touching on subject matter from humorous and amusing, beautiful and sensual, to the morbidly intriguing and macabre. He is truly a versatile talent.

Most recent shows include “That Damned Show : a macabre fine art exhibition”, “Motor city Art Expo“, and “The People’s Art Festival”
