Bio:
Christopher Kier, born in Toronto in 1959, is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto. He is widely respected for his encaustic wax and mixed-media works on both canvas and Mylar. Kier handles this technically-challenging medium with such deliberation and grace that his works take on a remarkable depth and permanence. He is now also working with digital and word- based imagery. While his choice of media has changed, these newer works retain Kier’s iconic signature style and maintain the powerful ethereal sensibility of his encaustic pieces.

Kier was a founding member of both “Bandit,” the artist group, and LOOP, an artist-run gallery in Toronto.
