Chris Wells

A Scottish artist specializing in painting, drawing and print making.My work is largely figurative, I use symbolism and depictions of the every day to tell stories and communicate ideas. I am interested in what can be read and implied from an object, a face or a place and the resulting assumptions and imagined narrative. During the first lock down I began to explore portraiture, rediscovering acrylic paint. I have since continued to use acrylic paints to depict more ambitious compositions and narratives, alongside daily drawing. I take inspiration from current affairs, popular culture, my own experiences, music,literature and art itself-often depicting or referencing other artists and artworks.
