Welcome!

My name is Chris Spring and this website celebrates a new direction I am taking in my life and work. I have now moved on from the British Museum after 20 rewarding years and am working within a community of artists, writers and musicians at the West London Art Factory, where I have a wonderful new studio. In addition to ongoing painting and life drawing, I am currently

  • writing works of fiction
  • preparing new writing on the arts of Africa, curatorship and the work of individual artists
  • carrying out international advisory work and consultancy
  • preparing a retrospective and catalogue raissoné of my visual artwork
  • proud to be serving on the board of the Africa Centre www.africacentre.org.uk and of the October Gallery www.octobergallery.co.uk

This website offers some account of my journey to this point over the past two decades – and suggests new paths I may take in the future.

STOP PRESS!
