We’re very pleased to be representing the artist Chris Riley. With a love of the mid-century style, Riley’s current work is inspired heavily by Palm Springs: easy living, persuasive sun and expansive skies. It’s all stylish, light and fun, with pastels and neons reigning supreme.
Chris’ art journey took a major detour in 2017 when he swapped the large, metallic background of cars and trucks for painting on canvas.
As a result, within 18 months Riley successfully applied his talent to canvas, completing and selling multiple artworks, painting a wide variety of subjects including florals, landscapes, wildlife. However, in 2021, his direction changed dramatically. Influenced by a love of the mid-century style, Riley found his current abiding inspiration to be all things Palm Springs
