About The Artist


My name is Chris and welcome to my website.  I've been a certified car guy all my life.  When I was a kid, there was never a shortage of matchbox and hot wheels in my room.  I also was constantly drawing cars and couldn't get enough of them. 

At the young age of 7, I started to take notice of classic cars. Even then I noticed they didn't look like what was currently on the road.  The classics had more color, more chrome, and just had more personality compared to a "new" 83 model that was new at the time.  The first vintage car I feel in love with was a 56 Packard Clipper that I spotted in the small Kentucky town we were living in.  

 

Fast forward to 2011, and I started to take my artwork in a more serious manner.  I started experimenting  with watercolors and then acrylics.  I could never make those two mediums behave the way  I wanted.  That's when I gave oil's a try and I never looked back.  I love the richness and depth that oils give and they are the most forgiving of the three mediums.  

 

Take a look around my website and check out my original oil paintings that are for sale.    Want a custom painting of your vintage ride or one from your past?   I'm happy to take on commissioned work as well. Email me at chriscallenautoart@gmail.com
