About Chris Quinlan Art
Chris began painting full time in 1999. He is well known for his unique signature style of painting, with much of his work residing in private and corporate collections worldwide.
Chris paints with a unique and original impressionistic technique, with an eye-catching blend of rich colours and bold textures, a very inviting and vivid style.
” My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colorful journey of self discovery and to be unafraid to share what I find.
My intended goal is to capture and communicate life’s experiences, moments and memories and convey my painted definition to the viewer. To draw the viewer into the piece and to stimulate and inspire them with its textures and colour.
I am influenced by colours I see, feel and experience. I am in awe of and thoroughly inspired by the old impressionists with their play of objects and light.
I will require a thousand lifetimes and a million canvases to paint all the concepts of my imagination.”
