Christian Dore was born in Kent, England. He studied at the Kent Institute of Art and Design and the prestigious Bournemouthe and Poole College of Art. Dore has lived in Colorado for almost two decades. His work explores the impressions of the lush environment around him. He takes the expressive qualities of color and mixes them with a somewhat whimsical narrative to capture his feelings. Dore’s flurry of abstract forms are by no means frenetic and each painting manages a to convey a serene moment in time, a tranquil calm. The relentless buildup of texture is intentional to convey that of sound and movement whilst meshing nature into his own distinctive style. Dore teaches at the Art Students League of Denver and Curtis Center for the Arts.
