KENT CHRISTENSEN was born in Los Angeles in 1957 and grew up in the orange, lemon, and avocado groves of Southern California, where he gained a fondness for orange crate labels, popular culture, and local fast food. Graduating from Art Center College of Design in 1986, he embarked upon a successful career as an illustrator in New York, where he lived for many years. His clients included TIME, BusinessWeek, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, and many others. More recently his work has been seen in gallery and museum shows in the US and internationally, with representation since 2006 by London’s gallery Eleven. Since 2014 he has collaborated with London shoe designer Camilla Elphick. He now lives primarily at Sundance in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. He teaches at both the University of Utah and Utah Valley University.
