BIO
Bryan Christie was born in 1973 in New York City. At 11 he began playing saxophone and went on to graduate from LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts. He shifted from music to the visual arts at 20 he began interning for his father’s illustration and animation studio, SlimFilms.
At age 24 he was hired as an art director for the magazine Scientific American. In 2002, he started his own scientific illustration studio, Bryan Christie Design. The studio specializes in medical, anatomical, and architectural illustration. His studio’s work has appeared in such publications as The New York Times, WIRED, Esquire, and National Geographic.
In 2005, he visited Michelangelo’s Pieta in Rome and describes it as "a truly was a spiritual experience. To see how stone could be turned into flesh, and that flesh—the way Michelangelo sculpted it—could hint at something of the spirit. I was looking at three things at once; I was looking at spirit; I was looking at flesh; I was looking at stone. When I saw that this concrete, inert material could hint at something, could be a window into something so sublime, so beautiful, it completely changed the direction of my life. And it was at that point that I decided to start making art in earnest.”
Recent solo exhibitions include: Every Angel Is Terror at Matter & Light in Boston; In The Body Of The World at the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio; Burnished Heart at Anita Rodgers Gallery, New York, NY; Body Beyond Boundaries at PRISMS (Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science) in Princeton, NJ.
