The artistic style of Christophe’s personal work takes its roots in Contemporary Imaginative Realism, drawing his inspiration from a wide variety of great classical painting movements, such as the European Symbolists, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, the Hudson River School, The American Realists, The Romantics and more contemporary artists like Sandorfi, Beksinski, Ugarte or the French Visionnaires movement in France from the 90s.
