Christopher Short

Christopher is a mixed media artist and incorporates graphic elements, laser engraving, and photography in his work. Christopher transforms prehistoric rock art into modern flickering light projections and surreal environments. His work incorporates video projection, strobes, flashlights, and custom laser hardware that he designs and builds. Christopher has exhibited in galleries in Glendale, Mesa, and Phoenix, Arizona, and in Santa Fe, New Mexico (the Museum of Contemporary Native Art). He sells his artwork at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Market in Phoenix, Prescott Indian Art Market, and Native Treasures Indian Arts Festival. In addition to working as an artist, Christopher teaches photography classes for other artists and produces videos for the Heard Museum and other Native American organizations. Christopher has won eleven ILDA awards (International Laser Display Association) for his laser artwork. In 2014 he became the only individual in the history of ILDA to sweep an awards category (Abstract Laser Shows). He repeated this accomplishment at the 2015 ILDA conference in Dubai and again at the 2016 ILDA conference in Baltimore.

Christopher was recently featured in an episode of the BBC World Travel Show:
