Chris Geale Richford is a multi disciplinary artist working across the mediums of traditional printmaking, illustration, Taxidermy & articulation, multimedia sculpture, assemblage, performance & sound.

Chris began exhibiting in Norwich in 2005. He is now based in London but still has strong ties to the Fine City. A founding member of the TBA Artist Collective who have been collaborating to create and curate broad reaching & interactive exhibitions since early 2019.

Always searching for the sublime and unafraid of the grotesque Chris is forever fascinated by the diversity and mutability of life forms. Seeing the human condition as a product of evolution he enjoys unearthing and subverting cultural archetypes both ancient and modern that speak of our somewhat schizophrenic relationship with “nature”.

“Working across so many mediums has come to remind me that the underlying substance of art is not its interpretation but the medium in which its presented. For an idea to be created a form must be created to be its vector in the world. Like a virus the DNA of the transmitted idea is itself the form of the piece.” 

Through printmaking Chris was able to transform MANTID SNIP from a dormant musical persona to a brand for anti-fashion accessories and clothing.

The heavier side of Chris' musical output has found a self styled home at Meat Locker Records.
