From the quaint harbour scenes of Tenby to celebrity portraits, meet contemporary Welsh artist
Internationally recognised, award winning contemporary artist Christopher Langley has been painting all his life. Inspired by his father who painted in oils, he launched his first solo exhibition in 2012 in his home town of Pontypridd. Since then Christopher had exhibited work in New York, London, Glasgow, Cardiff and Newport
Today, Christopher specialises in private and business art commissions. He gives art demonstrations and workshops to societies and schools, in addition to donating work, such as signed portraits by Alun Wyn Jones and Lord Alan Sugar to raise funds for charities such as Cancer Wales and AFB Soldiers.
“Absolutely thrilled with the piece of work titled ‘St Paul’s Cathedral’ The use of colour really works well on this piece. Very pleased, I very much look forward to seeing more of your work on our walls. I have my eye on your recent works titled NYC “👍

“I work to find the memory behind the image you send; that special person or pet in your life, whether passed or living; or that romantic view that means so much to you; a seascape, a beach, a townscape or landscape. It will be your very own commission.”
“Chris is the most talented artist. I asked Chris if he would from paint a portrait from photo of our dog Xena as a present for my husband for his birthday. Along the way, I received sketches of the progress. The final portrait is so life like it’s incredible! The attention to detail is fantastic, down to the white tip of Xena’s tail. L.
