Christopher Beane is an American fine art photographer and painter based in New York City. Known for his unique and vibrant flower imagery, Beane has photographed an astonishingly vast selection of floral species. His intense relationship with all things botanical began when he started working in the New York’s Flower District in Chelsea in the 1990s, which inspired numerous inventive bodies of work that explore the intricate beauty and decay of flowers. The artist’s mixed-media pieces often combine photography with painting in non-traditional materials such as nail polish, to create a uniquely, stunning blend of organic fantasy and reality.
He has been proclaimed the love child of Georgia O’Keeffe and Robert Mapplethorpe. His work has since been shown at the Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA, the Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, France. A monograph of the artist’s work was published in 2008, entitled, ‘Flower.’
