Christopher C. Beau was born in Lille, France. He has enjoyed doodling, drawing, sketching, painting, and making a mess since a very young age. While living in France he was enthralled with comic books, and their European versions “bande dessinee". Chris read many sci-fi authors as well as seeing sci-fi movies. He was exposed to a lot of inspiration, especially when his family moved to Paris. His artistic foundation can be attributed to the many art galleries, museums, temporary exhibitions, flea markets, weekend art fairs, and antique stores he visited in Paris. Chris was also fascinated with construction games, Mecano, Legos, cabin wood bricks, other bricks, brain teasers, brain puzzles, chess, and with real construction of Parisian projects.
His love of architecture grew as Paris provided all the needed seeds for inspiration like the layout of the city, the river Seine, the bridges, squares, parks, plazas, avenues, edifices, churches, and monuments. His travel grew his love of old stones, ruins, castles, churches, old sailboats. Chris been inspired by De Vinci, Piranesi, Dali, Escher, Mohlitz, Giger, Hugo, Adams, Moebius, Bilal, Druillet, Caza, Schuiten, Hermann, Meier, Gehry, Le Corbusier, Soleri, Khalili, and by European and Japanese culture of the feudal era.
