CHRIS

POLUNIN

Born in northeast England in 1989, Chris Polunin was encouraged to paint from a young age.

 

He was always most interested in the art of the 19th century and his search for traditional education in art led him to Florence and Edinburgh where he underwent rigorous training based on that of 19th-century ateliers.

In a world of modern, abstract art, Chris has always looked to move against the grain, a search for meaning and emotion in beauty and nature. His subjects are numerous and driven by a constant curiosity and he believes that his visual questions can be answered more accurately by painting directly from the subject.

‘Working directly from life is of the utmost importance. The urgency of a plain air painting  is always immersive and exciting while a portrait drawn from life will be a more truthful and wholistic portrayal of the sitter.’ -Chris Polunin
