Christopher Uminga is an artist out of New Haven, Connecticut. As unexciting as that may sound, he possesses the gift to channel cute into the art that he creates. Barring that, he’s just damn good.
Chris paints what he loves and offers us fantastic visions of our favorite characters.
About his art, he says:
“When I started painting, I wasn’t sure if there was a place for my work in the world of ‘fine art’, but than I realized fine art to some people might be tattoos, graffiti and even comic books. This is my art; I paint and draw things that make me happy. Enjoy.”
Below, in no particular order, you can find a few of our favorite pieces. The rest are just as good (or better) than the few featured here so make sure you check out his Deviant Art and his website, Cuminga.com.
Fans of this work should check out “EdgyCute: From Neo-Pop to Low Brow and Back Again” one of the latest projects he was involved in.
For those dying to meet him, he’ll be at the Baltimore Comic-Con on October 10th and 11th and the Big Apple Comic-Con on October 16th and 18th. For those not satisfied with only two appearances in one month, you can catch him at the Mark Batty Publisher Urban Arts Fest in Brooklyn, NY on October 3rd.
