Christopher Bowen


Artist statement: I only just began painting during the winter of 2019 - never having done anything in the fine arts beyond sketching and drawing a tiny bit. I have been an educator and professional video content creator for many years and I wanted to spend some creative time away from computers and digital devices. Painting seemed like a natural step. I have really enjoyed working with pigment application to render images in the representational / traditional-realism format. I find the process fun and relaxing.
Specific medium: Acrylic paints on stretched canvas
