With his minimalist style comprised of dots and lines in black and white paint, Christopher David Hayden (b. 1981) explores the literal negative space on canvas as a way of sparking the conversational negative space amongst observers. His focus on timeless dualities — nature versus nurture, evolution and decay, love and fear — within a modern application creates a visual Rorschach test for individuals to create their own interpretations.

Hayden has exhibited his work worldwide, including a solo exhibition at AFP Galleries in New York City, as well as being a part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Uruguay.

He currently divides his time between Los Angeles and New York City.
