Chris Cran: Manifesto…What’s Next

Chris Cran: Manifesto… What’s Next, presents Cran’s newest body of work, his latest manifestations of play in the studio.

About the artist
Canadian artist, Chris Cran has been described in The New York Times as a painter who "…has built a career on tampering with people’s perceptions." Widely exhibited across Canada and internationally recognized, Cran has become known for turning nothing into something, with the slightest push. Cran’s paintings, included in numerous Canadian collections, have to do with visual tricks, images that appear one way but have been made another way.*

In addition to his professional activities as a painter and teacher (ACAD), Cran has been actively involved with Calgary’s internationally recognized One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre. Cran's work has been reviewed by The New York Times, Canadian Art Magazine, and The Globe and Mail among many others. Cran’s work may be found in numerous private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada, the Glenbow Museum , the Nickle Arts Museum, and the Art Gallery of Alberta. Chris Cran is represented by TrépanierBaer Gallery in Calgary, Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto, and Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles.
