LORD TOPH is an accomplished, and multifaceted visual artist with several years of experience in creating fine art. He began painting at the age of three, and has displayed his work in numerous group shows, solo shows and private exhibitions throughout his career.  LORD TOPH received his formal training at the Academy of Arts in Memphis, Tennessee, where he majored in painting and design.

Charged by an early influence of Expressionism and Impressionism, LORD TOPH utilizes bold strokes reminiscent to that of DeKooning, Munch, Kandinsky, Chagall, and Picasso, to create paintings that transcend boundaries of conventional art styles.  He continues to expand his repertoire of work by introducing his new fine art style entitled, Empathicism.”  Works of this style evoke feelings of empathy in the viewer through the painting’s subject matter, color, size, title, and stroke application.  LORD TOPH has been recognized as a contemporary master by World Wide Art Publications (2014’s “International Contemporary Masters,” Vol. VIII), and is currently working on his fourth volume of “Expressions of Empathy.”

As founder, CEO, and Executive Producer of Monté CrisToph Multimedia, he has designed Monté CrisToph Multimedia (MC) as a realm of concept, sight and sound, dedicated to the conceptualization, development, and distribution of music, art, and literature across a range of genres.  LORD TOPH is also the founder & partner  of StarField Stories, a publishing house for new and original children’s literature; a division of Monté CrisToph Multimedia.
