Primates & Astronauts: Paintings by Chris Leib

Published Oct 2, 2019

Prior to his creative endeavors, American painter Chris Leib got a degree in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. He is now based in Brooklyn and working as a full time artist.

Chris is renowned for his realistic renditions of juxtaposed Bonobo chimps and astronauts.

“Transcending whimsy, his paintings are laden with meaning and intellectual contemplation. Chris’ work explores themes of heroism, human endeavour and the sensitivity of human hopes and ambitions to possible realities of science-fact.

His work challenges us to contemplate a collision of science-fiction, reality and religion, this three-car pile-up viewed from the vantage point of our evolutionary ancestors who have quietly continued to evolve themselves”.
