Born in Kent, England in 1970 Christian Dore spent most of his childhood living abroad. At the age of 13 he returned home to settle in the small village of Shorne in Kent. At 18 years of age he was accepted into The Kent Institute of Art and Design before continuing his education at the prestigious Bournemouthe and Poole College of Art.
His career began as a motion graphic artist for the BBC as well as MTV and Nickelodeon. After accepting a designers position in Colorado it was there that his artwork truly flourished. After moving to the Colorado foothills it was here that Dore’s work evolved into the work that is owned in private collections throughout the world.
Dore’s work explores the impressions of the lush environment around him. He takes the expressive qualities of color and mixes them with a somewhat whimsical narrative to capture his feelings. Dore’s flurry of abstract forms are by no means frenetic and each painting manages to convey a serene moment in time, a tranquil calm. The relentless build up of texture is intentional to convey that of sound and movement whilst meshing nature into his own distinctive style.
