Biography

Chris Wadden attended Salisbury College of Art before setting up a studio in London and has worked his way through a wide range of disciplines: animation, 3d assemblage, collage, graphic design, clock design, digital paintings and photography.

Chris started out as a designer/illustrator on Tatler magazine in the 80’s and later produced regular mixed media images for The Independent on Sunday, The Listener, Radio Times and New Scientist. He also spent several years on graphic design commissions for the fashion industry: John Galliano, Joseph, Vidal Sassoon became regular clients.

Inspired originally by Joseph Cornell, Chris began producing elaborate 3D constructions and was regularly commissioned to produce covers for the Independent on Sunday Review and the Guardian Weekend magazine. He later developed these into moving pieces and created a number of animations for title sequences and animated shorts for the BBC, Channel 4 and MTV.

His studio in Hoxton grew into a veritable Aladdin’s cave of constructed sets and assorted mechanical contraptions which was photographed for the Observer ‘Room of my Own’ feature. Chris then began using the computer to mimic the constructed images and now combines built objects with elements created on the Mac. From his studio in Somerset he now also produces hand made illustrated clocks based on various classic car speedometers.

Chris has also developed a style of digital painting which he first used for a regular column, Shop! for the Telegraph Saturday Magazine.
