Chris Peters is a classically trained artist based in Los Angeles, with numerous collectors in the music and film industries. To complement his recent exhibition of new paintings at Paul Booth's Last Rites Gallery in New York City, Mr. Peters created this short experimental film "The Soul Never Sleeps". It was designed to evoke the same mood and atmosphere as the other 12 pieces, acting as the exhibition's "13th Painting." The original score was composed for the film by Michael Hebert, an Emmy award winner whose music can be heard in feature films, television and national broadcast commercials. [more inside]
I make artwork about the natural world; my most recent involves watercolor drawings of anole lizards and interactive live plant pedestals. I also have series of roadkill and dodo oil pastel drawings. As a bonus, I uploaded videos of students poking at the plants in the interactive pieces and saying things like, "I think we should light them on fire." And then doing so.
This site serves as a repository of all my recent creations, including murals, drawings, music, writings and movies. An online portfolio, if you will. [more inside]
