Festoon 8 - Original by Chris Kettle

Brighton based artist Chris Kettle is known for his New Still Life paintings: inspired by the antiquated masters, Kettle has updated the traditional form, creating unexpected arrangements from obscure objects and realising his explosive vision through a hyper-real aesthetic.

About The Artist - Chris Kettle

Chris lives and works at his studio in Steyning, UK, and draws inspiration from the Old Masters when creating his Still Life artworks. We love the way he sheds new light on a traditional form of painting. 


He has said, “For the last couple of decades I have focused solely on Still Life painting. The paintings inhabit a mysterious world of their own with objects arranged on canvasses that are charged with light and drama to somehow channel emotion and universal feelings. I like the idea that my paintings are entertaining, and possess relatable aesthetic qualities alongside ambiguity and even at times a kind of humour. The absorbing challenge I face every time I pick up a brush and attempt to portray elements of the human spirit using the apparently inanimate, is one that that keeps me totally consumed.”

Chris studied Fine Art at Cardiff Institute and has been a featured artist in a variety of group shows in Milan, New York, Miami, and London. Additionally, his artwork has appeared in solo exhibitions in Gstaad, Newcastle, and Brighton.

We’ve been working with Chris Kettle since 2010.
