Galaktic Giant – Saint Lawrence Boulevard Below Prince Arthur, Montréal, Québec
From the Wikipedia entry: Born in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1979 Chris Dyer moved to Lima, Peru at age 4. Chris started skateboarding at 8 years old, surfing at 12, and later fan-based gang violence at a local soccer stadium. The name of the gang was "Sepulcro" who were fans of the Universitario de Deportes. Chris’ parents sent him to Canada to study, in 1996, at age 17. He lived in Ottawa with his grandmother, where he attended Heritage College and University of Ottawa. During those years he was a heavy drinker and was very self-destructive. He moved to Montreal in 2000 to study Illustration at Dawson College. In the summer of 2001 he went tree planting which is when he stopped drinking and started the pursuit of a much more spiritual path.He has also studied under (and later taught alongside) visionary masters including Alex Grey, Robert Venosa, Martina Hoffman, Laurence Caruana, A. Andrew Gonzales, Maura Holden, and Amanda Sage. His travels brought him to many countries including Belgium, where he met his wife Valerie Lambert, who he married in 2010. He continues to live off his craft and travel the world exhibiting art, painting murals and teaching workshops.
