Artist

Christopher Spinelli

Christopher Spinelli is a life-long Brooklyn resident who has been creating art in Brooklyn for over 40 years. He studied art at the Brooklyn Museum and the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan where he received his BFA in Media Arts and Illustration. His journey through the world of art began at a young age when he first decorated his parent’s bedroom set with colored chalk. Spinelli’s 1989 solo exhibit “Sodom by the Sea” focused on his lifelong fascination with Coney Island which continues through today. Spinelli has partnered with Sing for Hope since 2017 and has painted four pianos including one that now resides in a refugee camp in Athens, Greece. He also painted a MINI Countryman which brought music to all corners of NYC in during the summer of 2018. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. He has been the Visual Arts Instructor for the REACH Program since 2011.
