Chris Mars

False Witness
Chris Mars (1961-) is an American artist and musician. He was the drummer for seminal Minneapolis, Minnesota alternative rock band The Replacements and later joined informal supergroup Golden Smog before launching a solo career. He is also a painter, and has more or less left music behind to concentrate on showing his artwork. He typically shows little interest in speaking about music.

The Biostitute
His painting style, examples of which graced all of his album covers, is marked by nightmarish landscapes and grotesque, distorted figures. He draws inspiration from his older brother's struggle with schizophrenia. He generally likes to use oils or pastels, although he ventures into other media like acrylic and scratchboard. He created a 13-minute animated film about his work titled The Severed Stream. His work, which has fetched prices upwards of $30,000, has been featured throughout the United States and Canada. He has had solo exhibitions at Billy Shire Fine Arts, The Erie Art Museum, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, The Steensland Museum, Coker Bell Gallery, and the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum.
