Christopher Wallbank is a drawer, painter and printmaker. His work explores pictorial space and the experience of landscape, more often than not in the wild environments where he is most at home working in response to the changing elements and rhythm of nature. He is interested in the role visual art can play in presenting themes of ecology in a new light, which has led him to work alongside numerous conservation projects ranging from the long term monitoring of breeding guillemot colonies on Skomer Island to the preservation of urban black kites across the Delhi metropolis. He is a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists and has exhibited widely in the UK including group shows at the Mall Galleries, Christie’s London, Birdscapes and The Wellcome Collection with solo shows at Sheffield Cathedral, WWT Slimbridge, RSPB Ynys-hir and RSPB Rainham Marshes. He is a postgraduate alumnus of the Royal Drawing School where he currently enjoys sharing in the discovery of natural history through drawing, whilst teaching on the school’s young associates and young artists programmes.
