Whether icing monochrome layers of paint on to recycled LPs or layer upon layer of slices of color to canvas, Christian Vassell is mainly a stunning abstractionist. Vassell is also an avid reader and researcher, constantly studying books and pamphlet. He sometimes adds the texts of his reading to a drawing to create an graphic encyclopedia of sorts. Christian lives and works in Richmond, CA where he is a studio artist at NIAD.
