Christopher Stevens has shown widely in the UK and overseas, winning
prizes in competitions including the John Moores and Nat West
exhibitions. The animation presented in this exhibition represents a new
departure for him as an artist, his practice until this year situated solely
within painting. Another in the series: Café Delight was recently screened
at the Blink Animation showcase at Gasworks. His next solo exhibition
will be at Permanent Gallery in Brighton in November of this year.
Christopher’s work is represented by the Andrew Mummery Gallery in
London.
