Chris Granillo is an artist who grew up in the American Southwest fascinated by science and the animals of the desert that served as his backyard. According to the biography on his web page, he was born in 1982 in the Coachella Valley of California. As inspiring as the scenery surrounding him was, he soon discovered that art supplies were expensive. So like most street artists, he found more reasonably priced mediums for his expressions at local thrift stores or just about anywhere available.
Granillo’s favorite subjects include creatures, the human figure, nature, mystery and underwater scenes. He seems to have a fetish for the abnormal hidden in normality. His depictions can be stylistically accurate despite their extremely fantasy-oriented nature.
