The Art of Chris Guest

London-based fine artist Chris Guest creates exquisite portraits of tattooed subjects; using oil-painting techniques akin to 18th century painters, Chris’s work seamlessly melds the classic and the contemporary.

The London Tattoo Convention are thrilled to welcome Chris Guest back to the show this September 28-29-30th for an exhibition of his latest works, along with an oil-painting workshop for participating visitors.

About the artist:

Chris began painting and drawing from a very young age, and first started making money from art aged just 14, drawing portraits of music icons for other pupils at school.

At age 18, Chris began showing his work in galleries in Cornwall, and has since exhibited extensively throughout the UK and the US.

His originals and prints are collected worldwide, and his art has been featured in many magazines, publications and galleries around the globe.

For further details on how to book your workshop space, please email mrguest@hotmail.co.uk. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so don't delay!
