Chris Crewe

​​​​​​​​ I have been painting since I was a child and have never stopped, my first painting lessons were from my mother, who always kept Art supplies in the house. As I grew I developed a strong desire inside me to put my mark on the outside world and make things beautiful around me, growing up I studied a wide variety art mediums. My work is influenced by elements of the industrial landscape in Toronto, I am Fascinated by the way structures are put together and by how they come apart. I break things down into their most simple elements and then re-construct them in different ways. Generally the core theme throughout my work is about expressing impermanent environments which occur when industrial forms interact with organic elements.
