Teen Voices: Chris, Portraiture Artist

Each month we spotlight a teen at CPL.

Chris R. is 18 years old and will be a senior at Epic Academy. Chris has been coming to the Whitney Young Library Branch for about 6 years and has enjoyed the programs the library provides. He especially likes gaming, particularly video gaming and chess and also loves manga and anime.

Has been making art since early childhood and describes his art style as realism meets comic style. He has a special focus on realistic portraits. Chris is in the process of making a graphic novel and would also like to expand his portrait work. After he graduates, he would like to continue his artwork as well as learn about business and economics.

Check out some of his work below!

Chris says, "YOUmedia means a lot to me because it offers an opportunity to better your talents in the arts...it provided the peaceful and supporting space I needed to better my talent. I would definitely recommend YOUmedia to another teen because it has the resources needed to perfect any skill, whether it be a musical skill, poetry, painting or art. YOUmedia is a great opportunity for everyone!"

Thanks for sharing your artwork Chris, we can't wait to see what you create next!
