Chris Hunt

A native Texan, Chris Hunt has been demonstrating raw artistic talent from a very young age. 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 and the Louvre Museum.

Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Texas, Chris had read about the Eiffel Tower and Paris 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, was more than he could have ever imagined. This experience 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. In 2009 he was awarded People’s Choice Award at the Sangre De Cristo Museum’s Representing the West Art Show in Pueblo, CO. In 2012 he received the Gold Medal Award for Sculpture at the Bosque Art Classic in Clifton, TX. Chris’ work is featured in major collections around the country and has also been featured in such publications as Cowboys & Indians and Western Art Collector.
