Chris Crielaard was born in the South of Holland in 1971. From a very early age, he was fascinated by the occult and sadistic. He developed this into a comics style which blends his interests in Samurai culture, freemasonry, 'A Clockwork Orange', and the works of Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri, HR Giger and Gregory Dark. He is part of "The Lost Comics Tribe", a group exhibition with artists Marcel Ruijters, Mike Diana, Jakob Klemencic and Matthias Lehmann, in the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht at the end of 2002. His work has been called 'Apocalyptic Necroerotik fantasies for a new generation'.
