Chris Rigby

Chris Rigby is not a "Shetlander by Birth", but is definitely a "Shetlander by Adoption". You can tell that instantly, when you view his paintings of the Shetland landscape/seascape. His passion shines out and you know that he painted the scene from real life, with the wind tearing at his canvas, rather than from a photograph in the comfort of his studio. He lives in the North of England, but has been a very regular, and faithful, visitor to Shetland. He studied at the Falmouth School of Art. We fell in love with his work in an exhibition at Bonhoga and immediately bought a piece for our own home. We are delighted that Chris has agreed to show with us.
