Painter and Designer
Chris’s prowess as a professional painter evolved under his own direction and continues to develop with each new painting. As a self taught artist, his art is inspired by his love for our natural world and the emotional perspective of our universal connections.
“With every painting, my desired goal is to achieve realism and capture a moment that celebrates the natural beauty and wonder of our world; the colours, textures, and patterns created by light and the form of our amazing planet. To paint these images is like a meditation, an appreciation, a prayer, and a holiday all in one. I hope all who view the paintings feel the same through this reconnection with our shared universe”
Far North Queensland based artist, Chris Neilson is an imaginative, meticulous, realism orientated painter and designer. Born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Chris studied at the University of Melbourne before starting work with Clemenger in the competitive advertising industry of the late 1980’s. After extensive world travels in 1992-3 which took in south east Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North and Central Americas, Chris took up the brushes, following in his mother’s footsteps, and started to paint.
Based in beautiful Far North Queensland now, Chris is inspired by the local beauty, national parks, beaches and hinterland, with new local pieces planned for the future.
“Travels around this amazing country are a continuing inspiration for future artwork.”
Chris’s original works are hung in collectors homes in Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Greece and the USA.
