Chris Levine

(1960-), Photographer

Artist associated with 5 portraits
Chris Levine was born in Ontario, Canada. After studying graphic design at Chelsea School of Art and computer graphics at Central Saint Martins School of Art, he went on to produce a body of work that embraces photography, lasers, holography and stage design in which light is a central, connecting theme. Levine describes this range of activity as that of a 'light artist', in which light is both a primary visual characteristic but also has a philosophical and spiritual dimension reflecting the artist's engagement with eastern thought and meditation. In the last decade he has exhibited internationally, including exhibitions in London, Singapore, Paris and Milan.
