~ Chip Becker ~
In second grade Chip Becker had a dream
that he would become a famous artist, but like most of
us, it was not the road he would travel for the first
half of his life.
A near fatal accident that left him in a wheelchair,
forced him to reevaluate what he wanted to do in his life,
and created an opportunity for him to pursue the dream
that he had as a child.
A long standing interest in woodworking and building
and a past career in landscaping reinforced his use of
unusual natural materials he uses to mimic natural textures.
His technique is like none other. He says that his father
and his uncle, both artists, have also greatly influenced
his artwork. Chip specializes in 3-D wall paintings to
create perspective and depth that utilizes every day materials
in unusual ways. His work invites the viewer to walk up
and touch his work.
Chip studied at York Academy of Commercial Arts and Bradley
Academy. He has worked in Landscape Design and Photographic
Set Design. He also does freelance graphic and illustration
design for area companies.
