About Chris Down
"Looking back at the trajectory which my art has taken, it can be hard to see the connection between the different stages. Custom spray painting motorbikes in the 1980's. Celtic art through the 1990's. Book illustrating, mostly in traditional pen and ink. Then digital fantasy painting over the last few years. Different styles, different mediums, different eras. For me, the glue which holds it all together and informs much of what I do, is the proximity to where I live of Stonehenge. It has been within walking distance for most of my life. Even the school I went to was called Stonehenge school. The draw of the monument and the free festival held there in the time of my youth was a key influence to my development as an artist. I can feel its roots through much of what I do. I saw there was a life other than the one I had known previously. For me, art is a journey of exploration. When I start a painting, I do not always know where it will take me. But I do know it will be to somewhere else. A journey to the otherworld."
