Mostly known for mixed media sculpture often involving glass, Christopher Duffy is part dedicated craftsman and part cultural dilettante. He has lived in New York City since 2006 in Brooklyn and or Queens. Since moving there he was instrumental in the formation of the NO-profit experimental music, performance, and art space Paris London West Nile in Brooklyn.  He has worked with and fabricated glass objects for artists Michiko Sakano, Thaddeus Wolfe, Jeff Zimmerman, and Linsey Adelman, among others.  For several years he worked and toured the world with musician Girl Talk (Gregg Gillis) as a “hype man” fabricating and operating onstage visual elements and props.  He was the assistant art director on the short-lived cult classic Independent Film Channel television series Foodparty, created by Thu Tran.  He is currently the studio coordinator for Josiah McEllheny’s studio in Brooklyn NY.  In 2014 He began collaborating with the music duo Eaters (Jonathan Schenke and Bob Jones) to form something of a multimedia power trio, and continues to make memorable visual effects and elements for their live shows and ambient Glass Armonica based performances, as well as making collaborative sound sculptures and installations under the Easters creative umbrella.  He earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2003, has been awarded fellowships by The Creative Glass Center of America and Starworks, and has taught at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Christopher continues to make glass and mixed media artworks and has exhibited throughout the United States, and Europe.
