is a British painter. While studying at Chelsea School of Art alongside Mariko Mori and Chris Ofili, Christopher began to form an electric pastoralism in his work, a bloody traditionalism, seen through a digital, yetpainterly eye. He completed a series of paintings in 2002, “˜English Electric’, described as “˜digital folk art’, all of which are currently in private collections worldwide, before embarking on a 10-year business career in England and Italy. He returned to his studio full-time in 2012 and began a new body of work, “˜Girls’. These paintings are an attempt to reflect an attraction to the freakish humanity of backstage models, the violence of beauty and a fascination with taking things apart and putting them together again. Christopher currently divides his time between the East of England and Rome. He cites his influences as Haruki Murakami, Alexander McQueen and Larry Levan.
