Date: November 7, 2019 Category:

Chris Bennett is a Canadian painter living and working in London. He studied at The Alberta College of Art and Design where he gained a distinction in painting, after which he won the New Canadian Painting Competition. In 1996 received a Simon Chang & Phyllis Levine Foundation Scholarship. His work was in the Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art in 2002.
Since living in London, he has worked for a number of leading contemporary artists including the Chapman Brothers and Gillian Wearing as well as continuing to develop his own body work.
Chris doesn’t like to explain his paintings too much, he likes the work to speak for itself. Something he sees in the world around him can trigger inspiration and in these new paintings, he explores light, voids and space.
