CANNED AMERICANA

 

    Give noted Americana artist Christopher Gurshin enough time and he’ll paint anything. Aside from his celebrated murals, he creates miniature houses, boxes of all configurations, cut-outs and who knows what else. About twenty years ago, Chris acquired a set of tin canisters and has recently been inspired to start painting them, each one all the way around with rural scenes. He is now working on the last and largest canister of the group.

  Let Andy Warhol keep his Campbell soup cans. The real meal, for Americana enthusiasts, is on Christopher Gurshin’s cans.

Chris Gurshin's art.

Every scene, all around each can, is deep in detail.
