b. 1969

Harry Chrystall is a multi disciplinary artist with work encompassing both figurative and abstract themes, which he explores with a variety of materials in two and three dimensions.

His current work focuses on the relationship between artwork and spectator and how the universal and abstract principles that pervade our daily experience are mirrored in this uncertain relationship.
