Christopher Remmers, born 1982, is an American painter based in the Pacific Northwest focusing on classical realism and methodology. He has received extensive instruction/training in the traditional approaches of classical and imaginative realism. He began his formal training with California-based artist Virgil Elliot, author of “Traditional Oil Painting.” Having developed a better understanding of the classical approach, he enrolled in a 3-year program with the Georgetown Atelier in Seattle under the guidance of instructor Tenaya Sims. With Sims, Christopher was able to develop a strong narrative voice with imaginative, large-scale works. His work can be found in private collections around the world from France to New York and he has been working on a series of large-scale commissions to be shown in Versailles in the fall of 2021. His work has been exhibited through 33 Contemporary in Chicago, Abend Gallery in Denver, Corey Helford Gallery in L.A and has been a main show artist at the Illuxcon convention for 3 years running as well as a four time finalist at the ARC Salon, this work of “Zain” winning third place in the 15th International ARC Salon in the Imaginative Realism Category. Currently Remmers is an instructor at the Georgetown Atelier in Seattle WA.
