Some photos from my show in Gdansk, Poland



"Chris’ work is highly imaginative, almost like giant doodles that got out of control, the detailed and intricate images within images (the largest piece was over 2.5 metres long), pleased the Gdansk audience of critics, artists and cultural organizers, not an easy thing to do in a city brimming with art and culture." - Art@Gdansk Gallery, Poland

Birds of a Feather exhibition,Chicago, USA

Last night was the opening of a joint exhibition between myself and Jessie Smith-Larson called Birds of a Feather. I couldnt jet to the States so from 1am until 3am (British time) we held a live webcast from SWIM Gallery in West Chicago to Stoke on Trent, England.



It was great to meet so many new faces and hear about the Chicago arts scene which sounds thriving and very supportive.

I was showing large format limited edition prints from the Unsteady Hands collection whilst Jessie was showing some great paintings of birds hung by wires- a really great collaboration!
