Artist & Model
featuring Chris Yambar
Chris Yambar is celebrating his 30th year of painting, and is most well known for his contributions to the Simpsons television show and comic books. His previous work can be found in private and corporate collections, museums, and galleries in England, France, Germany, Canada, Russia, and Puerto Rico, including the Ronald Reagan Library, the P.T. Barnum Museum, the Bill Clinton Time Capsule at the Smithsonian, and Germany’s Hummel Museum, and his vibrant and emotive celebrity portraits can be found in nearly 90 celebrity estates.
“This show is the beginning of a celebration of modern women and the beauty and power of the female form. This has been a long-held topical tradition throughout art history and all world cultures. No other creature has the ability to captivate, inspire and ensnare the imagination of men like the beauty, grace and allure of a woman. A single woman can cause the rise and fall of an entire civilization and reduce the manliest of men to a bowl of quivering gelatin with a mere wink or gesture. Women are worthy of worship. This is my attempt to underscore that fact.”
“’Artist & Model’ is a new frontier for me. It represents a breakaway from my life as a Pop-genre painter and makes a hybrid entrance into more traditional Fine Art subject matter.” - Chris Yamba
