expo 67 lounge

Mid-century fashion, vintage pop culture and retro cool... from Expo 67 and beyond.

Chris Dorland

Chris Dorland is a Montreal-native painter, living in New York City.

Like me, much of his artistic expression is represented by Expo 67. And also like me, Chris is too young to have seen Expo first hand.

His work is inspired by what he considers a North American view of technology and optimism. Using architecture to create visual environments, his paintings seem familiar in their utopian references.

Needless to say, I totally dig his work!

I'm fascinated by this obsession with Expo 67 from people who were not even born when it happened. There must be a big cult of people like you out there.
