Chris Mackie was born in the working class town of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, UK in 1969. As an artist Chris expresses an entire range of human emotion, from the special bond of love and friendship, to the importance of self-reflection and individual triumphs.
Chris wants to highlight the importance of looking after the world for future generations. While some of his more serious pieces show the inevitable desperation of mankind and seeming futility of the human condition, Chris then shows us that there is hope and love. Chris depicts beautiful poignant moments of our lives - moments, which we all understand and which show our vulnerability.
"Art is not about the object iteself. Any piece of art, whether it's a painting or a sculpture, is a vessel to deliver you an experience, to provoke a thought, an emotion or a new outlook. Real art is the experience you have with the piece."
