Artist Christian Turner, aged 24 from Sandbach, has produced two new oil paintings of Nantwich following on from his paintings last year of Nantwich Town Square and Christmas in Nantwich. His two new oil paintings are of Cocoa Yard and The Crown Hotel. All the scenes are available to purchase as a greeting card and a postcard in Nantwich from the Nantwich Bookshop and Coffee Lounge (High Street), Special Cards (Market St), Inside Paradise (Oat Market) and Magpie Cards (Cocoa Yard).
Last year Christian released a Sandbach 2018 calendar of his paintings of Sandbach landmarks: Sandbach Cobbles, Sandbach Town Hall, The Wheatsheaf, Sandbach High Street, Sandbach School, Sandbach Church, The Old Hall, Well Bank, The Almshouses, Sandbach Crosses, Wheelock Hall Farm, and Christmas on the Cobbles.
Christian, who has autism, has also painted birds, marine life and geometric patterns. Christian has been drawing since he was a child and studied A-Level Art at Sandbach School. Christian has a small art studio upstairs in Sandbach Art Room (High Street, Sandbach). Some of his artwork is also for sale at Love Art Gallery on Pillory Street in Nantwich.
Christian said, “I have really enjoyed producing my work in Nantwich. I am currently working on further paintings of Nantwich including Churche’s Mansion. I also plan to produce bags and mugs based on my paintings in the near future. I hope that you enjoy my paintings. Thank you for your support – it is very much appreciated.”
