CHRIS GRIFFIN - Continuum.
Chris Griffin was born in Maesycwmmer, Mid Glamorgan and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1975. He is a member of the Welsh Group, the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales and has a studio at Oriel Canfas in Cardiff where he is a member of the Old Library Artists Ltd.

The Welsh landscape remains the dominant theme of his work. The emphases however continue to change. He regards painting and itís themes as a continuum both personally and universally. Following the influence of poetry in his work he has now revived his interest in probing the possibility that art can be capable of making statements about environmental and political issues. These are gentle yet serious enquiries, however the importance of aesthetics and lyricism remain firmly rooted in his work.
