Meet the Artist

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Christopher Weed graduated with a BFA from the University of Maryland, College Park after two years of study abroad in Munich, Germany.

The success of American Sculptor Christopher Weed results from a savvy ability to transform the idea of ordinary objects into extraordinary, reimagined monumental sculptures. They exude strength in scale while maintaining a levity of attitude, magnetically attracting the curiosity of those who visit them.

Chris’s art transforms the idea of ordinary objects into extraordinary, reimagined monumental sculptures. His work exudes strength in scale while maintaining a levity of attitude, magnetically attracting the curiosity of those who view the sculptures. My adventurous use of scale and unexpected angles creates a delightful thrill for viewers, providing an immersive experience. My choice of objects and the personality born into each sculpture is key to forming an emotional connection to the artwork. Whether the object is a stylized re-creation of something recognizable or a more symbolically abstracted representation, each sculpture has a familiarity that makes it relatable to the viewer. Scale, fragmented angles, light, and color transform the viewer to another realm if only for a brief moment, fostering a new relationship with our surroundings.

Chris has completed over 35 permanent public art installations since 1998, including University settings, bridges over protected wetlands, and light rail stations. Recent commissions and exhibitions include those for the Airway Median in (El Paso, TX)  Denver RTD Light Rail, LexArts (Lexington, KY) and the DeVos Center Place (Grand Rapids, MI), Grand Rapids Public Museum, Grand Rapids, MI, and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Colorado Springs, CO for the award-winning exhibition Conflict / Resolution. His work appears in collections over the globe, from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, and New York, to Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, and his hometown of Philadelphia.

Weed’s art is shown throughout the United States and abroad. You can check out some of Chris’s work on the Portfolio page here. If you have any questions about which art is available for sale or other inquiries, contact Chris here.
