Chris Polunin is a classically trained artist from Newcastle upon Tyne, currently working in Edinburgh. Polunin began his education in realist painting at Angel Academy of Art, Florence and continued at The Academy of Realist Art, Edinburgh.
Polunin believes the creation of beauty should be the primary aim of any artist. Of course, this idea dates back to the ancient Greeks and has been echoed in many periods since. Whilst his art is not solely about beauty, first and foremost, he hopes his work embodies this ideal.
