Christian is a French sculptor and painter who received his art diploma from the prestigious Ecole Superieur des Beaux Arts in Paris. His current work is mainly in monumental site specific sculpture. While at Chalk Hill he will make studies of imagined sculptures that fit into our landscape, and create an ephemeral sculpture at the edge of the vines & the wildlife area. Christian applied to our program for the warmth of interconnection & rich human experiences that we have on offer – these same emotions are at the heart of his sculptural work. Christian’s commissioned works live on four continents and many prestigious wine areas of Europe – yet to be seen in California.
