ABOUT ME
Christopher graduated in 1993 with a first class Honours degree in Visual Arts from De Montfort University, Leicester where he went on to study at the Royal Academy School of Art, London completing a Post-Graduate Degree in painting in 1997. During this time Christopher won the Young Artist of the Year Hunting Prize and was invited to attend a reception by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at Buckingham Palace to recognise the achievements of young adults from throughout the United Kingdom who have excelled in their particular field.
 
Christopher uniquely combines the latest digital technology with historical materials and techniques, working with Photoshop, Oil on copper and Goldpoint on gesso as well as Oil and Acrylic on linen. Old masters are among his current influences, including Canaletto whose celebrated views of London have inspired Christopher's new paintings, drawings and digital artworks. The fast evolving London skyline with its dynamic mix of contemporary and period architecture provides the basis for Christopher's current work.
 
Christopher's recent exhibitions include the Jerwood collection at the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings (2013) and ComplexCity, OXO Gallery, London (2013) and he has produced commissioned artworks for a number of Corporate clients including the British Embassy in Madrid, Loyens and Leoff and Foxtons.
