After having encountered homelessness and near death experiences, Chris felt at the end of his rope until a chance meeting with London based installation artist Che exposed him to visual art. Che took Chris in and bought for him materials and set him up in his studio. It was a lifeline that was to become an obsession.
Chris devoted all his energies to a crucial collection of paintings revealing the new energy found by an painter who now thought of nothing but painting. Outsider art is art by self-taught or naïve art makers. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions.
A private collector is keen to bring Chris' art to a wider public. He has donated the painting 'In My Life', a metre x metre canvas, to us as part of 'Dilemmas for a New Decade'
The painting is available for purchase here until April 1st 2020. This is an opportunity for collectors to purchase a painting from an artist who is testament to the redemptive powers of art on every level: its inception, its execution, and its exhibition.
