Magnanimously known for the infamous Salad Bar Putsch of 1992, Christopher Louis D’Errico is an antipasto activist, a sideshow flatulist, and a world famous artist. Slaving away his days as a shrimp boat latrine attendant, or moonlighting as a semi-pro entomologist—as an up-and-coming up-and-comer, D’Errico worked many jobs to make ends meet (although often when those ends met, they didn’t like other). One day, on a bet he made with a cashier at Red Lobster, D’Errico enrolled in mortuary school, eventually earning a BS degree and taking a job as a grave-shift ditch digger at a Masonic cemetery in Glasgow, Scotland. Following a heated argument over the proper viscosity of embalming fluid, D’Errico quit pursuing gainful employment so he could pretend to be a full-time artist. His faux-art career began in earnest when he was influenced by basketball legend Michael Jordan to find work as part-time short order cook in a deli on the east side of Kiev, Ukraine. It was there where his mad food skills earned him the designation of “sandwich artist” extraordinaire, igniting a hitherto unbeknownst lust for achieving and boasting about artistic excellence. After receiving a large settlement from a lawsuit having to do with an allergy to mayonnaise, D’Errico moved back to the continental United States, eventually residing in a penthouse atop one of the lavish strip hotels in Las Vegas. There he celebrated a high-carb diet and grew his beard and fingernails long—wearing only silk boxer shorts, a velour bathrobe and empty tissue boxes for slippers. After a few years staring at the walls and growing bored with high society, D’Errico decided to go back to living amongst the common folk. It’s there that he remains today, continuing to masterfully create mind-blowing works of stupendous art—giving some to charity, others to museums, and still more sold to wealthy patrons—making D’Errico one of the richest and most successful artists since Vincent Van Gogh.
