Christopher Still is a native Floridian who graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and continued his studies with courses in human anatomy at Jefferson Medical School and an apprenticeship in traditional painting techniques in Florence, Italy.
His paintings can be found in museums and private collections including the Governor's Mansion of Florida and the Smithsonian Institution. In the Tampa Bay Area, his work can be seen at the St. Petersburg City Hall, Tampa International Airport, Sandpearl Resort, Opal Sands Resort and Ruth Eckerd Hall.
Of special note are ten murals installed in the Florida House of Representatives in which the artist depicts Florida's historic and natural beauty. Still was commissioned in 1999 to complete ten murals featuring the history of the state. Additionally, he created the Viva Florida poster commemorating Florida’s 500th anniversary and painted the official portrait of Governor Lawton Chiles. A longtime friend of the Division of Cultural Affairs, Still has been generous with both his time and his artwork, granting the Division permission to use his paintings for multiple community art projects and educational publications. He was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2010 and is the Artist in Residence for the Florida Legislature.
