Chris Stevens studied Fine Art at the University of Reading. He is a figurative painter who has exhibited regularly since graduating in 1978. He has been a prizewinner in the BP Portrait Award, 50 over 50 and more recently in the Painted Faces exhibition organised by the Saatchi Gallery and Windsor & Newton. Chris is a painter with the firm belief that art is a marriage between concept and technical accomplishment. The process of making a painting is as much a part of the work as the finished piece.
Chris describes his work by saying, “The underlying idea of societies stereotyping and bigotry is a constant theme in my work and has been since the early eighties. While this remains constant I take the opportunity to address issues, which affect me.”
