“The essence of my art and related work, as an autonomous being, is to represent all aspects of the human spirit and humankind – with an emphasis on our diverse modes of thinking.
I’m a believer in hope, a visionary at work, a thinker in the arts, I am myself and the conglomeration of my triumphs. And to a varying degree, this shows up in my work.”

My name is Christopher Fornesa. I am an artist. I am a gay artist. I am an autistic artist. I am a Pinoy artist. I am an American artist. In every way that I am an artist, I am myself. I specialize in painting and drawing, however, I am looking to expand in other media, notably in web design.

The philosophy of my art centers on my experiences as a, more or less, marginalized individual and I utilize art to channel such experiences in a manner appropriate to the situation.
