I am mostly a self taught painter. I count Lucien Freud, Paul Cadmus, Jenny Saville, J. C. Leyendecker and Euan Uglow among my influences. I have been drawing all my life and began painting ten years ago. I am primarily concerned with depicting the figure within a decidedly oblique narrative. I’m drawn to models with striking or unusual physical attributes - long hair, prominent facial features, a lanky build. I often exaggerate these attributes. Source: christophersousa.tumblr.com
