Biography / Hunangofiant
Fe enw ew/My name is Chris Langley, and this website is my presentation gallery.
Recently, I have been passionate in creating oil paintings inspired by the Welsh mountains of Pen y Fan. During 2017, I was featured on S4C TV, BBC Radio Wales and online on the BBC News Arts section, from my concept of a collection of studies featuring the pubs, past present of Cardiff. Local galleries approached me to hold exhibitions.
I find great inspiration in many things about Wales. The people and the towns of Wales inspire me in the same way the landscape inspires. Subjects of my works include Newport’s Transporter Bridge, seascapes of Pembrokeshire, Cardiff Landmarks, and views of the Welsh Valleys.
