Art Brokerage; Christian Riese Lassen American Artist: Christian Riese Lassen has been recognized the world over for more than 20 years for his unique art and vision. Regarded as the premier marine artist of our time, his majestic paintings inspire appreciation and awareness of Mother Earth. Christian Riese Lassen’s super-realistic series of marine paintings, featuring whales, dolphins and fish seen both above and below the ocean's surface are stunning "multi-environmental" paintings. The "Two Worlds" style is an eloquent statement about the interconnection of the Earth's bio-systems and made the artist internationally famous almost overnight. "The thing about art and surfing is: a wave is like an empty canvas. I try to do something new and different with each; every time," says Mr. Lassen. In truth, Mr. Lassen places color, light and contrast so beautifully, he creates such intensity and drama, it can be difficult to take your eyes off of his pieces. Selected by the United Nations as Goodwill Ambassador for 1998, International Year of the Ocean, Mr. Lassen created the painting "Sanctuary" for the United Nations commemorative stamp for "Ocean Preservation". Mr. Lassen has also partnered with the Walt Disney Company incorporating Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, into 3 original Lassen art works and related projects. Listings wanted.
