The Turner Collection - Showing Louisiana to the World

Posted,


Art has been Christopher Turner’s passion since childhood. On entering high school in 1999, Turner already had a large portfolio of work, created during his years at Broadmoor Middle School in Baton Rouge, LA, which then had a Gifted and Talented Program. At Capitol High, he participated in the Talented Arts Program-launched there ostensibly for his benefit. "For the first two years," says Turner, "I was the only kid in the [art] classroom." As a freshman, he didn't want to choose between playing football and painting; thanks to TAP, he didn't have to. As it turned out, he left football behind as a sophomore, instead devoting his after-school hours to caring for his grandmother, who had cancer. Everything else took a back seat. She died the summer before his senior year, yet Turner persevered in his art studies until graduating in 2003.

What inspires you?

Many things inspire me, Louisiana is my muse. From New Orleans, streetcars, jazz, food, architecture, its a melting pot of culture. Louisiana is the only place I know that you can experience ten plus cultures in a 100 mile radius. Its truly a gumbo that I love. I'm also a fan of modern art and architecture that shows in my abstract works.

How has your work made a difference, do you have a fan story?

My work continues to take me to new places. I'm able to mentor kids at schools and other programs. I'm noticed in my area often. I love running into beginner artist at the store. Helping pick out great supplies and talk to them about techniques.
