Christopher Burch, aka Goya_Goon (b.1979), is a multi-disciplinary maker and educator based in San Francisco, CA, and St. Louis, MO.

Engaging with myth, legend, and folkloric expression, Burch breaches issues of identity, spirituality, and social justice. Through a wide range of mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, music, and large-scale public works, Burch generates an enigmatic sense of wonderment that, at its core, is a testament to the poetics and resilience of the human spirit.
