Nashville-based photographer, painter and draftsman Chris Scarborough creates a diverse range of works, which reference the archetypes of Eastern pop culture, art history and science fiction. The cultural concepts of cuteness and beauty mixed with the playful violence of Japanese cartoons inform Scarborough’s imagery and process. While working in graphite, painting or photography, the artist painstakingly renders his subjects with absolute precision in an exploration into the nature of reality and ideals.
Scarborough’s drawings were recently featured in Hi Fructose Magazine Vol. 10 this spring. The Savannah College of Art and Design graduate recently completed solo exhibitions at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana, and the Foley Gallery in New York City. The artist is currently exhibiting Portraits of Aftermath at the Curator’s Office in Washington, D.C.
