A bit about Chris Cyprus

Self taught, obsessive and unique, after eight years as a self-taught painter, Chris Cyprus has moved on from portraying Lancashire’s stunning landscapes to painting allotments on hillsides close to his home.


After numerous TV appearances, notably BBC Gardener’s World in summer 2008 his paintings are in high demand and purchased by buyers both at home and abroad who find a magnetic appeal in the secret world of garden sheds and home-grown root vegetables. The 37-year-old from Mossley, Lancashire Speaking at the opening of a recent exhibition, said that his passion for painting allotment scenes began with a fascination with the humble garden shed.
