Christopher Bent

 

Chris took a BA in Graphic Design and Illustration and worked in television for 20 years as a graphic designer producing animated sequences for television.   Now freelance, he divides his time between his own painting, graphic design commissions and the teaching of animation at De Montfort University.  

As Chris says "I am inspired by land and seascape.  I read some time ago about an artist who painted a sky a day.  I thought this an exciting challenge and started to look at the abstract quality of skies more closely and to experiment freely with the wonderful shapes and variety of edges in cloud formations.  This coincided with a change of medium from watercolour to oil."

In the gallery we are currently showing a series of Chris's landscapes. 


Chris has been a member of LSA since 1996.
