Chris Ashley is an artist, writer, and educator who lives and works in Oakland, California. In addition to his paintings, Ashley is known for his multi-year drawing project, which uses HTML tables to make browser-rendered images posted daily on his blog, Look, See. These images are often used to make large-scale installations of inkjet prints in the gallery setting. Using the markup language of the web, Ashley’s painterly color sense works against the grid-bound nature of tables to make monthly-themed sets of images in response to various subjects.

Chris Ashley’s recent solo exhibitions include "Blue & Green Paintings" at the George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco; "HTML Drawings/Recent Work" at David Cunningham Projects, San Francisco; and "WYSIWYG" at Chambers Gallery, Portland.
