Christian Parkes Visionary Artist
Christian Parkes is an emerging artist having first exhibited in 2006. He was born in Torbay, Devon and the power and beauty of the south west continues to inspire him.
Christian has always been touched with the creative fire and the expression of this fire has been a lifelong activity. Drawing and painting consistently through his life. He studied Film at Art college but returned to painting as a purer medium in which to channel his passion and explore the spiritual and philosophical themes that recur throughout his art. He developed a unique style of oil painting working mostly in isolation inspired by the beauty of creation and great artists from the past. After his first exhibition he opened himself up to a wider community of related contemporary artists. Travelling to Canada meeting and studying under the visionary artists Alex and Alyson Grey in 2009 added new depth to his work. During 2011 he visited California to take Fusionart classes with master fusion artist Freydoon Rassouli. This free more spontaneous technique has been a big influence in his art. Christians artwork has recently been published in the first book about the fusionart movement authored by Rassouli.
His work has been exhibited with the South Hams Arts Forum and Devon open studios. He is a member of the Society for Art of Imagination and his paintings have been selected for exhibitions at La Galleria Pall Mall London in 2009 and 2011.
Christian’s art can be seen as visionary in that his paintings translate the visions of inspired imagination. He can also be counted amongst a number of artists who aim for their work to have a positive impact on the wider world by actively helping to create and evolve a new vision for humanity. A vision of greater peace, beauty, love and harmony. To this aim much of Christian’s work attempts to highlight the true brilliance of our nature as human souls and the true gift and vast opportunity of this existence.
