That means 'hello!' in Vietnam, where I am currently residing. My name is Chris Charney and I've been created art since I was capable of holding a pencil. I formally studied fine art in the U.S. (California) and have spent the past few years traveling the globe in an effort to know more about her. I thrive on celebrating the union of humanity and the natural world in my art. Surfing has been a passion of mine for over 30 years and it, like other art forms, is becoming a universal language - linking people and cultures on a sensory level. Leave a comment, ask a question, or commission me for your next project. I'd love to hear from you. Cheers!
