Statement

Chris Murray studied at Bath Academy of Art and worked as a graphic designer before starting to paint professionally. His experience encompasses painting and drawing, print making, graphic design, illustration and storyboarding, mural design, design for television and garden design.

His paintings are concerned with making stories, received, shared or personal. In the latter, he paints his immediate surroundings, familiar objects and the paraphernalia of life. Totem visitors: a dog, a double bass player, a crab or monster, also feature, afflicting or consoling the hero stick figure. He is a member of Aire Valley Artists and has exhibited widely in the Yorkshire region.
