Christopher Conte è un norvegese trapiantato a New York. Ha studiato arte, anatomia e lavora nel campo delle protesi.

Combinando scultura, medicina e biomeccanica, aiuta gli altri, ma ha anche modo di costruire cose come queste… che per di più si muovono…

Christopher Conte was born in Bergen, Norway where he began drawing at age 3. At 6, shortly after moving to New York, he began taking college art classes at Hofstra University following a recommendation from his first grade teacher.
While still in high school he attended St. John’s University and in the eleventh grade received a scholarship to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Once at Pratt, he also studied human anatomy at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital through a program sponsored by Columbia University.
After earning a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art (BFA) from Pratt Institute, he entered the prosthetics field and began making artificial limbs for amputees in New York. Combining an abiding love for sculpture, medical science and biomechanics, the field enables Chris to apply his natural talents to help others in less fortunate situations, which he still does to this day.
Creating sculpture that served no practical purpose beyond being art remained his greatest diversion. In 2007, Chris began offering these unique pieces for sale to the public for the first time.
