Christopher Tate graduated from Falmouth School of Art with an honours degree in Illustration in 2004: he grew up and was educated in Cornwall and has developed a strong reputation as a Cornish artist with a distinctive style and vision.
Christopher is particularly interested in architecture and the built environment. He feels his work is inspired by reportage style- painting as storytelling.
‘Cornwall for me isn’t just about the sea: it’s about the towns, villages and random buildings’
He’s fascinated by different materials and the ways in which buildings age and tell their own story.
