"A Warrior’s Spirit"

"Un Espíritu Guerrero"

“A Warrior’s Spirit” is derived from the spirit for independence that lives within all of us. The bold use of color and characters depict the artist’s driving passion of working toward this goal in every aspect of his life. In Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, where his family is from, they live by the motto “Sempre Ascendens,” or “Always Ascending,” and by the creed that “work tempers the spirit.” Christopher feels this philosophy is alive and prevalent in today’s society as well as in his own life. People are building, innovating, and working harder than ever to own a life of freedom. Entrepreneurs are the warriors of today and the conquerors of tomorrow.
