Chris Rivers

Chris Rivers is a self-taught artist from Manchester, England who comes from a background of art and music. His main passion growing up was playing drums which led him to being a professional drummer for over 10 years.

In late 2016 he decided to step away from the music business and commit to putting all his energy into his paintings. He doesn’t believe in a right or wrong way with anything creative. He enjoys the process of trial and error and learning things for yourself,  He loves going into the unknown and painting with a certain amount of not having a plan about where it’ll go. His large and dramatic oil paintings are bold, abstract displays of charged colour and fine, surrealistic details.
