Chris Wolston

Chris Wolston is an American artist and designer based in Brooklyn, New York, and Medellín, Colombia. His thoughtfully conceptualized and deliberately fabricated work — which ranges from furniture and lighting to installation and sculpture — rigorously blends traditional techniques and materials with a wry, contemporary realism, arriving at an entirely original postmodern aesthetic imbued with material fluency and environmental urgency.

Wolston’s interest in non-Western art-making traditions originated at the Kokrobitey Institute, in Accra, Ghana, where he studied before receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009 from RISD. He later earned a Fulbright grant to study pre-Columbian ceramics in Colombia. Invigorated by his exposure, Wolston opened a second studio in Medellín to continue his collaboration with local artisans.
