A child of the 70's into the 80's, ChrisRWK's world was completely flooded with the imagery and ideas presented by his television, comic books, and the music and movies of the time. Immersed in these various media, the artist began to store the images brought forward through these everyday experiences in what he refers to as his "mental journal". This journal was a haven of his thoughts that he could refer back to whenever necessary.  ChrisRWK's paintings frequently cite past conceptions of popular culture embedded in his psyche's cache. This use of intertextuality also serves to offer a comfort or familiarity of sorts to the viewer, freequntly revealing everyday musings and people one would pass on the street without a second thought. These images also aid the artist in the creation of a visual language comprised of his own iconographic imagery. Through the repetition of this imagery, ChrisRWK strives to familiarize his viewers with the language he has constructed. He believes that the notions within his pieces serve as a backbone to the many stories created by the viewer when he or she is experiencing the work.
