Christopher Pratt is a Newfoundland icon, with family roots in the island extending back for hundreds of years, and a deep and abiding sense of his identity as a Newfoundlander. More importantly, he is one of a handful of recognized artists who have defined their homeland in the eyes of the world. His flawless work is based almost entirely on memory, with ideas that may take weeks or months or even years to evolve, yet are honed with delicate precision into unforgettable visions of a land and its human artifacts.
