Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Christopher Batten has had a profound interest in Visual Art since the age of four. After completing an extensive college preparatory Visual Arts program at Detroit’s Cass Technical High School, Christopher went on to study at the Columbus College of Art and Design. He later graduated in 2006 (with honors) from Detroit’s College for Creative Studies. Exhibited nationally, Christopher’s work has appeared in the National Black Fine Arts Show and Embrace (a Fine Art Exhibition associated with the Black Fine Arts Festival in Atlanta, Georgia). Christopher continues to use his work as a means of triggering thought and subsequent change.
