Chris Bliss is a Nottingham-based designer and illustrator with a fixation on the correlations between form, feeling and pop culture. His gritty illustrations often depict celebrity subjects caught in a harshly rendered scene, charged with electric emotion. Bliss strives to incorporate form with function, allowing every stroke and angle to hold weight in the piece. His use of street art-inspired coloring and somewhat spontaneous compositional style gives his work an authentic fringe culture vibe.

Chris Bliss favors a provoking and controversial means of rendering reality, exposing his tough vision. His sarcastic and witty personality shines through, with titles like ‘Baby Got Beau.’ The free lance artist works to make each of his works bold and engaging. His art is available for purchase in prints, tees and cell phone cases. Stats for Gritty Hard-Life Illustrations Trending: Older & Average
