Chris Cyprus

In 2003, Chris began painting allotment scenes, following a visit to the local council allotments in his home town. These quirky and often humorous depictions of life on the allotment gained notoriety quickly and were featured on BBC’s Gardeners World, where he was commissioned to paint the allotment garden of presenter, Joe Swift.

His body of work ‘Northern Lights’ saw him produce over 250 paintings between 2014-2017 highlighting the plight of traditional sodium lighting being replaced by LED bulbs. The evocative observations of Northern British towns and landscapes at dusk were consequently featured on BBC’s ‘One Show’ and ITV’s ‘Northwest Tonight’.
