Biography

Chris Howells studied Graphic Design at Stourbridge College of Art and Design and was employed as a graphic designer until becoming a full time artist 30 years ago. He was widely known for his traditional rural landscapes and paintings of horses, collectors of his paintings coming from all parts of the world. Chris had exhibited extensively and regularly in both one man and group exhibitions. 


Artist Statement

When Chris moved to Malvern he was developing new ideas for still-life paintings. Although based on traditional techniques the inspiration came with a desire to evolve and push the boundaries of still-life painting. The paintings progress from one work to another as if on a journey without a known destination or end. He hoped that the paintings were not only thought provoking, but fun. He once said that "it is difficult to live in Malvern and not be inspired by the hills", which was a subject that Chris found both exciting and challenging.
