CHRISTIAN PLATTHome.html

       Born 1986 in Washington D.C., Christian Platt began studying art during classes at the Maret School and weekend classes at the Corcoran College of Art.  Following his graduation from Maret in 2005, he attended Denison University for a semester before deciding to move West, where he worked for three years in the cutting horse program at the Switchback Ranch in Red Lodge, Montana and spent falls as a wrangler in the Ranch’s big game hunting camps based in the Absaroka Range outside of Cody, Wyoming.  He returned to painting in the summer of 2008 and moved back East to focus full-time on art. 


       Christian Platt’s first solo show was held at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in March 2009, which was followed by his inclusion in the summer 2009 Ausstellung at the AAART Foundation in Kirchberg, Austria.  After three years of painting on his own he enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in August 2010.  He is currently a full time student in their four-year certificate program and lives, works, and studies in Philadelphia, PA.
