I’ve started research for my FMP (Final Major Project(s)). I’m currently working on two projects, the first combines a number of my different loves; photography, design, writing and travel. I plan to create a travel guide to Amsterdam (where I shall be visiting at the end of this month). I’m currently working on ideas, and plan to make it unique to the photography or design lovers. Picking out keep places to visit, and walking tours etc.
Chris Corr is an artist who combines travelling and illustration. His work is inspired from his travels, and protrays not only scenes but the often colourful atmousphere.
Christopher was born in London and studied at The Royal College of Art.
His round the world travels provide much inspiration for his work. His first trip to India in 1986 resulted in a one person show entitled “Wel-come To India” which was followed by a book and a short BBC TV film of the same name.
Commissions range from book jackets, posters, the World Aids Day 1996 campaign, artist for Qantas, artist for Windstar Cruises.
The Royal Mail sent him to Bosnia to paint SFOR ,the Peace-Keeping troops for a commemorative stamp in the Millennium Stamps Project.
His work gained my intrest as it meant he could travel to these countries and bring back so much insperation for these paintings. He would ispire others to go out and do the same, whilst informing people of these beautiful places. Have a look at some of his images, I just love how colourful they are!
