'Cristobal Dam (Christopher Dam, b. 1976) was raised in Alaska and Spain. He moved to New York City in his teens where he grew into a painter, curator, and community organizer. For over two decades, Dam’s art has channeled his origins and talents to unite diverse cultures that each uniquely contribute to life being robustly lush.
Cofounder of Dam Stuhltrager in 1998 – one of the early galleries catapulting Williamsburg’s dawning – Cris became a figure in Brooklyn’s burgeoning creative scene. Dam Stuhltrager was an original member of WGA (Williamsburg Gallery Association) and founded WAC (Williamsburg Art Central), which organized the first neighborhood Open Studio event. Dam also spearheaded contemporary Williamsburg’s earliest international city exchange with Madrid.'
