Chris Hunt

A native Texan, Chris Hunt has been demonstrating raw artistic talent from a very young age through drawings of anything that caught his eye. His artistic flame began to burn its brightest when he joined the United States Air Force in 1993 and was stationed in Spangdahlem, Germany; three hours from Paris, France and the Louvre Museum.

Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Texas, Chris had read about the Eiffel Tower and Paris, France in text books, but not much more, so he didn't know what was in store when he decided to visit “The City of Light”. When he paid his entry into the Louvre Museum, the sculptures by Michelangelo, Bernini, Barye and Rodin, just to name a few, were more than he could have ever imagined. His experience in Europe and the Masterpieces that filled the Louvre and Rodin's museum left an impression on Chris that made him dream of artistic achievement.

After returning from his tour in the Air Force, Chris quickly transposed the inspiration he brought home from Europe into Western Art, wining Best of Show awards, People’s Choice awards and several Best Sculpture awards in shows and museums. Chris’ work is featured in major collections around the country and has also been featured in such publications as Cowboys & Indians, Western Art Collector and a feature publication for NSide Texas
