Social Climbing – Chris Mason

Artist BIO: Chris Mason. Born in New York, 1970 Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration with honors, Parsons School of Design, 1992. Mason’s artistic career began as a muralist and faux-finisher. Adept at trompe-l’oeil and neo-classical landscape, his work appears in some of the finest homes. In 1999, Mason embarked on an exploration on the U.S. eventually settling in California. It was at this time that he began working more extensively with wire, a medium he had previously used only as armature. “I’ve always found the human form to be the most compelling subject to render in any medium. The action of climbing provides an opportunity to look at the figure suspended in space, to be able to see from angles less seen in most traditional sculpture.
