A Note From The Artist: Christian Chapman On Animal And Pet Portraits

“I love animals - their innocence and purity, and the way they don’t judge, they simply love unconditionally.”

“Painting animals is just as critical to me as my portraiture pieces. Animals are such characters in their own right and we can be very connected to them. My goal is to make their persona bounce off the canvas as if they are with you right now in this very moment.”


Your Custom Pet Portrait On A Medium Of Your Choice

At Christian Chapman Art, we offer a range of mediums on which to display your custom artwork.

Choose to have your custom pet or animal portrait painted on canvas or opt for metal for a spectacular high-end finish that shimmers and shines, changing the colour and mood of the painting as you move. 

Or for an artwork that’s sure to make waves, choose to feature your art on a vintage surfboard made by Christian.
