Christopher Keene (1948- ) was born in London, Ontario. After receiving his B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design and his Masters degree from Syracuse University, he returned to Canada where he has received a number of commissions for public sculpture including a work for a Manulife project in Vancouver, B.C. Like "Salmon Run," Keene's smaller works often depict animals in a humorous and human way.
