One of the neatest things about Ottawa-based painter Christopher Griffin is that his studio is a former corner store smack dab in the middle of a residential neighbourhood. His windows provide an ever-changing display of huge canvases, depicting wildlife culled from his various travels to skaters on the Rideau Canal. His art is immediately accessible, found in your favorite coffee shop or while dining to the tunes of wax-spinning djs at chichi Market eateries. Griffin’s upscale primitivism shows a fondness for the environment while making ours better.
