WE HAVE ADDED A NEW POSTER "CUPS 1"
We have also added variations of the original photos in order to offer you a better selection. We can custom make a poster for you from any photo from any of our listings in A Place For Art or from one of the videos.

There are 2 different videos that show the process of Christopher’s art with the photo in the poster of CUPS 1.
The first video is located in the ABOUT section of our etsy shop A Place For ArtCA. The first part of the short video is an explanation of Christopher’s Placement Art and the 2nd part is called “This Is My Voice” and it shows Christopher working on his art with blue and brown cups. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/APlaceForArtCA?ref=l2-shop-header-avatar
The second video shows Christopher expanding his enjoyment of placing paper cups in a certain fashion https://youtu.be/14veVyX2v5I link to the creating process of the Creative Cups.
We have also added variations of the original photos in order to offer you a better selection. For example the PINK ARRAY NO TEXT poster was added when some customers preferred no text. We added second version posters of the CLICKERS and of the WAVY BUILDING since those photos are popular with people especially when they have seen the videos. View on youtube:

Our 23 year old son Christopher has always interacted with his environment in a very unique way. This shop APlaceForArtCA is a way to celebrate Christopher's life and his art. We call it “Placement Art” as a way to describe how he takes everyday objects (T.V. clickers, bagels, paper cups etc) and creates art.
About 4 years ago I started to document his creative works with photos. We never named what Christopher created other than his "work". But when he started to create things like WAVY BUILDING 1 & WAVY BUILDING 2 posters and the CASCADING HATS, our family started to see his work as a form of art. We have been adding more videos showing Christopher's process. We hope that by viewing the many videos on youtube you will learn about his process but also just have some fun! We have recently added more videos to YouTube of the "process" as Christopher creates:
· https://youtu.be/Ck2sWDLgBCE link to the creating process of Colourful Crayons in posters CRAYON 1 & CRAYON 2
· https://youtu.be/XM1QSR2EIIE link to his process with some of his favourite foods you will find in poster PASTA 1
More to be uploaded in the next few weeks. We hope you have fun watching these latest videos! In the process of organizing thousands of photos, we realized that this was Christopher's way of communicating with us. We were encouraged by several people, particularly those very familiar with the art world, to make some videos to share Christopher's artistic "process". In the videos where there is text in the first person, "I", we wrote the text imagining what Christopher would say if he had greater use of language. He has severe autism and considered non-verbal.
At my son’s first art exhibition April 2, 2017, my husband and I wrote and displayed on Christopher’s art table: “Christopher not only gives us a window to his world but gives us the opportunity to re-examine how we view things. We, his parents, have found his Placement Art fascinating. It is both a mystery and a joy in our lives. We hope you will enjoy Christopher’s work.” -Christopher’s Mom Bernadette and Dad Onofrio
In doing the preparation work we (including family, friends and those who work with Christopher) gained a deeper appreciation of Christopher’s art. THAT is priceless! B.Z.
