While Christopher Coppers didn’t decide to pursue art as a career until he was 18, he’s been attracted to self-expression since he was a child. “Since the age of 11 or 12, I started to collect all the magazines that were in in my house! I loved it, all the colors, the articles, the pictures. I knew at that time I wanted to work for the magazine industry, but didn’t know how yet. Concerning my Vintage PLAYBOYS, I am just going to say, “Ask my father.” (The elder Mr. Coppers was unavailable for comment.) His journey as an artist stems from a need to feel free and have fun, and to “leave a little imprint of the society he lives in.” To this day, he still lets inspiration come to him naturally and relies on the roller coaster ride that is day-to-day existence to breathe life into his art. “My inspiration is always there when I don’t know it’s going to arrive! So I let myself go…” And when asked where he would go if he let himself go, he responds with: “I think that I would take a car from New York and would go across the USA to be inspired!”
