The energy and spirit of artist Christopher Lundy is constantly reflected in his art. Lundy is a  contemporary artist hailing from Seattle, renowned for his mastery of the Modern Illuminist technique.

​Commencing his artistic odyssey at a young age, Lundy’s unwavering commitment propelled him towards apprenticeships and extensive studies in France, Spain, Ireland, and Hawaii. Amid the artistic haven of Montmartre in Paris, he meticulously refined his craft under the tutelage of French masters. It was here that he embarked on a journey of exploration, discovering a distinctive fusion of materials that would ultimately shape his unique artistic style. Inspired by artistic legends Vincent Van Gogh and Salvador Dali, Lundy’s work beautifully reflects and plays with light on canvas.

​Lundy’s profound passion for travel and diverse world cultures, coupled with his deep appreciation for art and architecture, continually fuels his artistic journey. Drawing from a tapestry of life experiences, he has masterfully evolved his artwork into the latest line of creations, the Diamond Lotus paintings.

With an unwavering quest for clarity and innovation, Lundy seeks to infuse his paintings with the boundless wonder and awe of creation, resonating with the spiritual essence that unites us all. Each stroke of his brush, and each piece of glass becomes a heartfelt communication, inviting viewers to connect with the profound spiritual nature within themselves through the transformative power of art.

Lundy’s homes in the Mountains of Colorado and on the Hawaiian Islands allow for both an adventurous lifestyle and inspiration to create spectacular art. His adventurous personality led him to develop a more dynamic form of art to awe and inspire the viewer. Lundy developed this Avant- Garde technique by being bold and adventurous with his mediums and tools. Lundy searches the world for  his materials to include Columbian Plant Resin he hand processes, Crystals and Gems, Hand crafted paints, Diamond Dust, Metals and much more. Through what can only be described as alchemy, Lundy then uses extreme temperatures with Fire and Liquid Nitrogen to create the spectacular flows in his contemporary art work.  Each piece ranges from 3-15 or more layers thick creating a truly multi-dimensional journey into the art. This unique technique has been created and developed by Lundy and is one of a kind.

When not in his studio Lundy enjoys hiking, reading a good book, traveling, exploring new places, snowboarding, and going to a good movie with his better half, River.


Each piece is started with a meditation and surrender to what the piece wants to become. As Michaelangelo said “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

The organic canvas is then created for each piece. Paints are handcrafted using natural materials, Gemstones, Metals, Diamond Dusts, hand-blown glass, Swarovski crystals, Flowers and other materials are chosen for the piece. The organic Columbian plant resin is then processed. The piece starts to come together layer by layer.  Each piece ranges from three layers up to fifteen layers deep; giving the paintings a stunning three dimensional quality upon completion. During his creation process Lundy uses a high heat to melt and manipulate mediums used in the painting. Each layer is then frozen in time using liquid nitrogen or dry ice and the piece is then sealed in an organic plant based resin. Some pieces include trees sculpted over the top of finished backgrounds with multiple layers of Acrylic paints. It is a lengthy process, ranging from several weeks to over a year and each and every painting is truly one of a kind.


Desiring to evolve his artistic technique to new levels, Lundy began experimenting with the manipulation of resin off of the canvas. The results of his experimentation led to the creation of the Dimensions series. Each individually sculpted piece used to create the painting is pulled and stretched into the shape Lundy desires using high heat. This delicate process is akin to the work of a glassblower. Once shaped, the three dimensional pieces are then painted and fused within the final layers of the painting resulting in stunning pieces which actually jump off of the canvas toward the viewer. Lundy’s modern Avant -Garde techniques are unmatched and truly revolutionary in the world of art.


Inspired by the artist’s soulmate, River Blue Lotus, Diamond Lotus paintings are reflections of divine flow and elegance. They embody purity and simplicity in form, with bursts of color and emanations of light. In a process akin to alchemy, Christopher and River craft organic flows within the blown glass, capturing the essence of nature’s perfection. They harmonize technique and form to produce brilliant works of art on canvas.

​Immersed in notions of beauty, grace, love, and contemplation, Diamond Lotus paintings aim to touch the pure essence of our being. They seek to reflect clarity and the pristine nature of our inner spirit. Crafted by the artist’s hand and forged through the creative process, these paintings symbolize the journey we all embark upon in our quest to return to the divine.


In the realm of symbolism, the element of Wind embodies the essence of the mind—the very source from which all things visible and created emerge. Our minds serve as the creators and interpreters of the world around us, enabling us to navigate and find purpose within our existence. With each Diamond Lotus painting, the journey commences with a meditative process, a profound connection that permits the mind to shape and evolve the artwork into its destined form—a heartfelt representation of our spirituality and inner being. In this way, these paintings become a testament to the interplay between the mind and the soul, a manifestation of our deepest connection to the realm of spirit.


Diamond Lotus paintings possess an extraordinary allure, stemming not only from their uniqueness and rarity but also from their innate value. Each Diamond Lotus is adorned with the artist’s signature—a stunning, earth mined one-carat natural diamond solitaire—elevating both the visual appeal and the spiritual essence of the painting’s narrative. This signature touch adds an extra layer of significance, symbolizing the profound journey of the soul and infusing the artwork with an undeniable sense of beauty and transcendence. The fusion of material and spiritual elements creates a harmonious symphony, making every Diamond Lotus paintings a truly remarkable treasure.


Each Diamond Lotus painting is a testament to careful craftsmanship, born from multiple sessions of dedicated work in the glass studio. Each piece of glass used in the paintings is individually handcrafted by Christopher and River Lotus. This attention to detail, ensures that each one is distinct and every piece that goes into the painting is a unique masterpiece in itself. The selection of colors and mediums for the glass is a result of thoughtful consideration, aiming for the best quality and to perfectly complement each specific painting. It is through this meticulous process that every Diamond Lotus painting exudes its captivating beauty and unmatched elegance.


Diamond Lotus paintings come to life through a flow inspired by the very essence of water. Just as water is a divine source of life, continuously flowing and transforming while remaining unified, so too do Diamond Lotus pieces embody this harmonious fluidity. They are a manifestation of pure creative energy, channeling the dynamic movement of life force energy from its source. Like water’s ability to shift effortlessly from state to state, Diamond Lotus paintings capture the essence of transformation and renewal, inviting viewers to connect with the profound rhythm of existence and the boundless creativity that flows from the divine source within.
