Chris Uphues is concerned with an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary in his work embracing toys, popular and anonymous objects, video games, animation, comics fireworks and advertising. He understands the fantastic energy force and formal variety present everywhere in products of everyday popular culture. Looking closely at his work it is full of wonderful and fantastic surprises. He is a true craftsman with a steady hand for details and a polished surface.
