The Humble Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by artist Christopher Hanson, entitled Skin. Christopher’s signature works are large scale realistic portraits of subjects using traditional painting methods that show great accuracy and detail. His latest exhibition explores the issues of perception and the various representations of dark skin. 'My work explores how British society and media relates to black skin in relation to beauty standards and ideals. And how it is seen as exotic and ‘other’ even in modern times’. Christopher Hanson.

Christopher Hanson is a fine Artist who undertook a BA (Hons) degree and furthered his studies at the London Atelier of Representational Art. His work has been seen in group and solo exhibitions in London and Nottingham. Christopher’s painting Osun Womi was selected for the BP Portrait award 2020 Exhibition and recently on show at the  John Moores Painting Prize Award Exhibition.
