- Christian Waggoner has gained prestige and success through more than a decade of high-profile commissions from such clients as Marriott Marquis, Anheiser Busch and Hank Aaron BMW. A significant moment in this Atlanta native’s career included commissioned paintings of athletes for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. His uniquely enhanced, photo-realistic style makes viewers wonder how he achieves such skillful detail with a mere brush and canvas.
He has been commissioned to produce a painting series commemorating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. Hand-picked by LucasFilm LTD, he has recreated unforgettable moments in the classic film series with his unique exploration of light and reflections. An original painting inspired by the series was published in Star Wars Art: Visions in November 2010. He is currently working on collaboration with Disney Films and the Disney Gallery.
