Modern Metropolis in Watercolors (18 pieces)

Christopher St. Leger creates his version of a modern metropolis in watercolor – and it's absolutely fantastic. Integrating skateboard street culture, city life, and nature, St. Leger creates works so realistic, it's almost as if we're looking at the world through his eyes. “I respond to the elusive yet commonplace things I encounter en route to my destination,” he says. “As I observe and render the outer, often banal aspect of the subject, I aim to extract a poetry that suggests a cherished and lively fantasy life protected within. “Experiencing otherness, even if only across one's backyard, is elation: the feeling of entering the sphere of another's life, of imagining a possibility where for a moment habits can be broken or longings fulfilled. Maybe it is romantic, or maybe it is simply automotive, to desire freedom of movement without physical exertion.”
