His artistic journey evolved over the years and began in the world of global street art & graffiti. Growing up Toth split his time between New York City and Halifax, and was heavily influenced by the 80s and 90s New York graffiti scene, which was the catalyst to his eventual career as a full-time artist. Christian draws inspiration from science fiction and has a significant 1960’s to 1990’s comic book & toy collection, including a nearly complete set of all of the original 1970’s & 1980’s Star Wars figures and toys.

“I believe the activity of creating art is the greatest form of human expression. Art is important because it has the ability to convey an individual's experience and simultaneously creates a strong connection with our greater shared consciousness. Each individuals interaction and interpretation with a work of art is unique, creating valuable experiences and helping to evolve our lives. My artistic journey has evolved over the years, beginning in the world of global street art & graffiti and becoming a known prolific figure in the space in many countries. I naturally evolved and expanded in scope and size into vastly different media including life size bronze sculptures, significant stainless steel works, massive exterior murals on the sides of commercial buildings, iconic light works, modern multi media office installations, and more. I've realized during this process that I enjoy the challenge of learning new methods of creating, learning to understand what impact these processes have on developing my creative approach, conveying expression, and how this impacts the arts audience and their experience. My passion for creating visual art has taken me to where I am today as a full time multifaceted visual artist, allowing my experience to cultivate a repertoire of skills including as examples; drawings, paintings, furniture design, large-scale exterior installations & murals, sculptures made of materials including bronze, stainless steel, & lexan, as well as parlaying my existing body of work into the exciting new art asset space of Non Fungible Tokens - NFTs.”
