Christopher McCandless Exhibition

I have completed a series of paintings based on the life and travels of Christopher McCandless, subject of Jon Krakauer’s book “Into The Wild” and Sean Penn’s feature film by the same name.

Back To The Wild is a book and DVD based on Chris’ photographs and writings. I was a part of the team that helped to create this book and DVD. Please have a look at Back The Wild here. Mr. Hal Holbrook, Wayne Westerberg and Jan Burres all helped in the narration of the DVD.

Many of these paintings have sold already but there are some still available. I hope you enjoy viewing these paintings. The remaining paintings are available at Abbozzo Gallery should you wish to see them in person.

I thank Walt and Billie McCandless for allowing me to use Christopher’s photographs as the inspiration behind these paintings. Please visit Chris’s Purpose: The Christopher Johnson Memorial Foundation here.
