Chris Hall

Chris was born at the end of 1945, raised in Chatham, Kent and has lived in South Wales since 1982.  He explains, "I'd been a practising poet most of my adult life and I didn't come to the visual arts in a serious way until my mid-fifties, when I enrolled on Allison Neal's Diploma in Fine Art at Hereford College."

Since then Chris has been a regular exhibitor at the Apple Store Gallery in Hereford initially in Brockhampton where he was the inaugural artist and at the current gallery in Hereford itself. 

Still active in the poetry sphere, he has recently produced a CD of selected poetry and hopes to become involved with further publishing projects, both in the literary and visual fields now that he has retired as a visiting lecturer in art history, cultural studies and psychology for the Community University of the Valleys.
