Chris Fornataro's Gallery


Chris's Bio

Chris Fornataro is the son of two artists who started drawing and painting before he could walk. He was a rare combination of artist and athlete and moved from Richmond Virginia to Los Angeles in 2008 to play football for USC. He left the team his sophomore year to focus on painting and filmmaking, applying the same focus and discipline from his football career to art. He primarily works in oils, and spends most free days painting "en plein air" in his new home of Sarasota Florida. Chris also teaches oil painting online with his popular channel, Paint Coach. As of 2020 he has over 250 online students signed up for his classes on Patreon.
