"Sometimes you have to lose yourself before you can find anything"

Chris Mackie
Born. 1969 Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, UK.

International artist Chris Mackie grew up in the working class village of Gawthorpe, England. He developed an interest in art from an early age producing pencil sketches of super heroes and icons from the big screen, however it wasn't until 2003 that Chris began working in art professionally.

From 2003-2006, Chris painted a series of popular iconic figures in a self described Pop Art style. In 2006 Chris moved to New Zealand and he explored the use of pastels and began painting more powerful and meaningful works with much more personal and emotional content.

As well as his own life's journey Chris's biggest inspiration comes from British master painter L.S. Lowry, his favorite childhood artist. He loved the simplicity and the power of his works.

Chris also enjoys working with clay. After being introduced to the new medium by American artist, friend and The Garden Gallery owner Charles W. Andrews he has produced a variety of forms.

Recently Chris returned to Pop Art. Steering away from the traditional canvas he decided to change things up and began painting on steel. Similar to his use with pastels he paints with his hands. He finds this a much more natural way of painting, having no tool between himself and the working surface he feels that he is ‘literally in the painting’.

In 2011, Chris was appointed Design Director for ArteriorMotive.com

Chris is a resident artist at The Garden Gallery and Haverstick Gallery, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

He has exhibited his work at The State Museum of Pennsylvania and also has work at The National Coal Mining Museum for England.
