How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

The closest category I fall into would be expressionist and neo expressionist art. I admire the technique and methodology of Francis Bacon and attemptwork in a state of what Jean Dubuffet called "Delirium" i.e. the rejection of logic in favour of emotion.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

For me art is an examination and expression of the self and of the world I inhabit

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Chris Hellowell - Art

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I visit as many galleries as I can. As part of my MAs I read a lot on the philosophy of art e.g. existentialism, absurdism, Art Brut

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I worked as a graphic designer and owned and ran a London agency for 35 years so Fine Art seemed to be a natural step when I retired. I have an MA in Fine Art - Merit, from Hereford College of Art and will be starting an MA in Photography there this coming academic year.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

Joint MA show with Derby School of Art at Stryx in Birmingham and MA degree show at Canwood Gallery, Herefordshire. Recently a CCM show at Christchurch in Malvern and a small show at Iapetus Shell Gallery in Malvern.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

I display work on the Saatchi Art website
