CHRIS RIVERS

Chris Rivers is a contemporary painter from Manchester, born in 1983. Having played drums in a rock band for many years, in 2016 Rivers turned his creativity to painting, creating beautiful, dreamlike landscapes of clouds, cherubs, the occasional demon. His large and dramatic oil paintings are bold, abstract displays of charged colour and fine, surrealistic detail. His works use colour to create an overall mood of tranquillity, it is only when the viewer looks closer that they see darker scenes in the details.
