Chris Gollon is an established name in British painting. Born London 1953, he has enjoyed many solo museum exhibitions in the UK, museum acquisitions and public commissions. He has exhibited at Art Chicago and also with Yoko Ono, David Bowie and Gavin Turk in ROOT, a crossover exhibition of contemporary music and art created by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, at Chisenhale Gallery, London.

Chris Gollon's work is attracting increasing acclaim in the national press, specialist arts press and Alan Yentob’s BBC1 programme Imagine. His film collaboration with JABOD, entitled Kaleidomorphism One, was premiered in London at the East End Film Festival (2008). Novelist Sara Maitland's book Stations of the Cross (Continuum, London & New York, 2009) was wholly inspired by and features Gollon's 14 paintings of the Stations of the Cross, which were commissioned by the Church of England for a grade-one listed Sir John Soane church in East London.

Chris Gollon: Humanity in Art by art historian Tamsin Pickeral (Hyde & Hughes) and endorsed by Bill Bryson OBE, was published in 2010. Chris Gollon was both First Artist in Residence and Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study (2009), Durham University, and has accepted an invitation to return as Artist in Residence at St Mary's College in spring 2011. He has recently exhibited alongside work by Henry Moore, Craigie Aitchison, Antony Gormley and Tracey Emin in Commission at the public gallery Wallspace, City of London.
