Chris Prout was born in Wales and educated at Swansea school of art studying technical illustration and graphics. After twenty years working in various creative industries he committed himself to painting full time.


Chris paints bold expressive landscapes, seascapes and architecture, rich in colour, texture and representational or semi abstract in nature. Chris enjoys being out of doors, walking the gentle hills of the Midlands or the soaring coastal footpaths of Wales and beyond. These experienced impressions energise his imagination and frequently appear in his work. In essence he wishes his paintings to convey a sense of beauty, intrigue and place.
