CHRIS SORIA
Chris Soria is a visual artist who works in photo-collage, painting, mixed-media, and ephemeral sculpture.

Soria's photo-collages consist of layered photographs, cut and pasted in plexiglass. In a series of time-lapsing documentary works, Soria collages thousands of photographs to reconstruct buildings, environments, and figures, reconfiguring locations and revealing the succession of nature over time as they transform in the changing seasons and weather. Where and when pluralize, time separates, space is replaced, and everything becomes an record of what is past.

A muralist and public artist, Soria has created large scale murals and public works of art throughout New York City and abroad. His paintings often appear within mandala formations, assimilating portraiture, architecture, and cosmological diagrams.

Co-creator of Maniac Pumpkin Carvers Chris Soria and Marc Evan, have pioneered pumpkin carving, making an art form of the medium and pushing the limits of pumpkin sculpture. Maniac has appeared on Food Network, MoMA, the New Yorker and numerous publications worldwide. To learn more, visit maniacpumpkincarvers.com.
