British contemporary sculptor Christopher Townsend graduated from Liverpool University in 1996, with a first class combined honours degree in Fine Art and Psychology, and since then has been creating sculpture in his Oxfordshire studio. He works mainly with mild steel, stainless steel, found metal objects, stone and wood, making sculpture for the home and garden. His work covers a wide spectrum of topics, figurative to abstract; he is currently drawing inspiration from the trees in the Wychwood forest near his studio.
He has undertaken several public sculpture commissions, working with Warwickshire County Council to create gateway features for Shipston-On-Stour, and on a wall-based relief sculpture for The Kadorie Critical Research Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. He has also worked with children in schools, creating sculptural features and doing sculpture workshops.
Christopher Townsend has work on show in galleries within the UK and has work in private collections in the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Israel, Portugal and Ireland. He has exhibited at RHS Hampton court, RHS Tatton Park, Grand Designs Live.
