About - Christian Fries

Christian Fries, born 1988 in USA. Studied visual arts & cultures at the Webster University of Vienna. Above all else, Christian feels his Social responsibilities are to his peers, clientele and the art market. He thinks that to be all one can be one must uphold a clear set of morals that aren't dictated by status, material worth, or fame. He believes in cultivating artists ideas from the ground up, helping them become “someone”. His main principle and goal is to help create a sustainable future for a new generation of artists that have been wrongly treated by a system that plays only on instant gratification compared to long-term engagement with them and their work, which is better for the emerging artist.  This experience and human interaction that Christian has gained has only solidified the problem solving techniques need to understand the ever changing sensitive role one must undertake while working in the field of art science and cultural studies in society and the world.
