Each piece Cris makes is a reflection of his everyday life, mixing vibrant candy colors with marine surroundings. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same because they are all originals, making all of his works highly collectible. The pieces he makes are made from the finest materials, including custom hand-mixed candy colors, cut and ground aluminum, hand laid flame, tribal and other designs taking an extensive amount of time for the pieces to come to perfection.
Born in the Big Apple, New York City, Cris Woloszak was destined for big things from a young age. Growing up Cris fell in love with fast cars, and when his family moved down to South Florida, Cris found a new passion; the ocean. Cris took his love of custom painted cars, combined with his new love for marine life, and in 2005 launched his Jaws of Fire Collection. This collection is a combination of automotive paint and hand-laid flames airbrushed onto a fiberglass marine taxidermy mold. The first shark Cris placed in an art gallery sold within 3 hours of being hung on the wall. The rest of his success soon followed.
From the Jaws of Fire collection, Cris then expanded to Metal Aluminations. Aluminations are custom painted works of art hand-ground into Aluminum than candied with custom automotive paint colors. The combination of grinding and artwork hand-done on these pieces was a partnership made to be eye candy. It sparked the interest of galleries across the country.
