Christian Peña
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Christian Pena is a multi-media artist from Chicago, Illinois. Christian studied at the American Academy of Art. He uses his art as a tool to document the never-ending Halloween parade that marches through the wrinkles of his brain. He uses themes of horror to mirror and escape real life. As a child he would have frequent encounters with the macabre. What else could one expect when your mother stops to contemplate the gooey innards laying three feet from it's corpse before going to dinner.

Growing up, his imagination grew wild watching classic monster movies, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock and Peewee's Playhouse. He was later influenced by artists like Bob Ross, Tim Burton and John Kricfalusi. The spirit of Halloween oozes through his veins. Halloween reveals that life is an adventure and you can't let the unknown stop you from exploring. Through his work, he wants to illustrate the fun and beauty of the dark and spooky.
