In his wall painting Christopher Worker develops original abstract compositions, references the work of other painters, or helps birth clients' ideas. He has 15 years experience manipulating paint and helping clients choose colour.
After a degree in architecture he painted houses for subsistence while developing various picture projects. Transposing the abstract painter's oeuvre into his decorative pattern book, Christopher Worker exploits their experimentation as the 20C decorators did the patterns of William Morris, and William Morris the decorative craft of the middle ages.
Christopher Worker is the brush name of Christopher Walker, one of a series of pseudonyms related to myTHself (see below).
A Christopher Worker wall painting averages about £70 per square metre.
Jackson Pollock paintings average about £4,484,771 per square metre. 60,000x more expensive!
Mark Rothko paintings average about £2,154,647 per square metre. 30,000x more expensive!
Gerhard Richter paintings average about £446,338 per square metre. 6,000x more expensive! *
However both Pollock and Rothko are dead, and so unavailable for your project and Gerhard Richter is very difficult to get hold of. Of course getting Jackson Pollock to paint your house in the 1930's would have been about the same price as a Christopher Worker wall today...

CW made up the word myTHself and it's become his conceptual 'meta title', an arch-identity allowing his various projects to be separate and simultaneous. All the 'CW's' are self portraits, in the self portrait myTHself. I'm Christopher Writer, I'm pretentious and a terrible speller. Christopher Worker achieves unity of painting and profession, and his clients get great walls. Others include :
