About Chris Cart
Over the years I have created many murals. Working big is having the sky for your canvas. However, I have also worked very small, illustrating over 30 books and book covers, painting miniatures, carving block prints, drawing etchings and monotypes. I love making things.

As a young ‘starving artist’, I started out as a sculptor in Guadalajara, Mexico, carving masks, and modeling figures in clay. But I found the lure of the brush too much to resist. And the best advice given to me back then by an old artist was, “Draw, draw, draw.” I have never stopped.

With a pencil or brush in hand I can create worlds within the canvas frame. The figures are my players and the canvas my stage. However, I am no fantasy artist. Reality creates the spark. My eyes open, I find things that need to be in my paintings.

Born in Maine, I can claim that much coveted ‘native’ status but in truth I lived away a lot. My bones are solid New England stock but my blood carries the dusts of years in Mexico…and a bit of rust from the Pacific Northwest as well.”

In February 2015 Christopher Cart completed his large 14 x 40 foot mural, Kennebec, commissioned for the lobby of the new Capital Judicial Center, in Maine’s capital city. The mural tells the story of the people of the Kennebec River with over 50 figures from 500 years of living and working on the river.
