Sketching comics, battleships and alien invaders as a child, Chris was always interested in creating new worlds. His visual art was sidetracked for several years as he pursued his other passion, playing music. After several years of making records and touring Chris left that circus and started a career in the film industry in New York. Working his way up in several set shops as a Carpenter, Painter and Decorator he started gaining a reputation and began taking on his own clientele. Crank Yankers and Comedy Central brought Chris to Los Angeles 12 years ago. He has firmly planted his feet in Southern California, heading back to NY occasionally for projects. Chris Giammalvo is a Local 800 Production Designer and Art Director and always interested in taking on new projects and challenges.
