Chris Prout is a contemporary artist and was educated at Swansea school of art studying technical illustration and graphics. He has been involved in the creative industry for well over 20 years. He is a skilled draughtsman but has always enjoyed using a broad brush to express himself. With extensive experience of working as an architectural illustrator /visualiser and benefitting from national and international clients, Chris carved out a healthy professional career working in the disciplines of publishing, design and property. Nowadays he paints bold expressive landscapes, seascapes and architecture.
His award winning paintings are rich in colour, texture and are representational or semi abstract in nature. He enjoys being out of doors, walking the soaring coastal footpaths of Wales and the gentle hills of the Midlands, Norfolk and Suffolk. These experienced impressions energise his imagination and frequently appear in his work. He regularly exhibits his paintings and his work hangs in many private collections throughout the UK and overseas.
In recent years and since he has committed himself to painting full time he has received much praise and with notable success. With a distinctive and original approach to his work, he chooses to build and present and his own artwork and frames, thereby offering the viewer a unique, immersive and personal experience of his painterly works.
Chris draws, paints, scrapes, smudges and throws his paint from his home studio tucked away in rural Northamptonshire
