Chris Blunkell

I am a largely self-taught painter working from Whitstable, on the outer Thames Estuary in south east England. I paint people and places, working mainly in acrylic paint and charcoal on a variety of media including canvas, paper and MDF. I’m interested in where the figurative meets the abstract, and find that if I think I know what I’m doing I tend not to like the result too well. There is nothing quite like the feeling that the emerging picture is trying to tell you something, to encourage you to reveal it in a particular way. I can’t think of anything more exciting.
