Chris Salmon

Painter and printmaker. Salmon studied for his Foundation at Bourneville College and was taught to etch by Ted Allen. Following this he went on to complete a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Canterbury Art College in 1982. After leaving Canterbury he founded WAZHEAD, a range of novelty hats that reached unexpected popularity and even briefly adorned the heads of Vivienne Westwood and Elton John. During this period he took a hiatus from art to focus on his band, Stump, before returning to his craft in 1992 to work part time towards an MA in Printmaking from Camberwell Art College, which he received two years later with distinction. He has been producing artwork steadily ever since, and has also lectured in Printmaking at Morley College.
