Christopher Stead (b. 1974 Halifax, UK) lives and works in London.
Subversive, playful and highly Foucauldian in his theory, his work evades the dichotomies and polarities regimented by the hegemonic order. By utilizing stigmatized materials and colours often loaded with gender associations, ornament and fetish, he disrupts hierarchies and questions the aesthetic of pop and the commodity.
Stead previously lived as a graffiti artist, painting on rail systems around Europe for over 20 years. In 2016 he graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art at the City and Guilds of London Art School, London, where he received the Painter - Stainers Scholarship Prize and Brian Till Art History Thesis Award.
Selected exhibitions include Chromophobia (solo show) at Proof Gallery, London and group exhibitions at The Silver Building, London, curated by Approved by Pablo; Stolen Space, London; Transition Gallery, London; Urban Spree, Berlin; Londonewcastle Project Space, London; Make Your Mark Gallery, Helsinki; Movement, Worcester & Wayward Gallery, London.
