Tugwell, Chris

Chris Tugwell was born in 1938 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. Christopher has enjoyed a long journey which now celebrates him as one of South Africa’s most well – known landscape artists. He is today recognised as an artist of international standard and works in oil.

Best known for his abilities to capture the brilliant light of the sun – drenched Transvaal highveld, the atmosphere of the old tobacco farms of the Magaliesburg district, his work reveals an intense awareness and responsiveness to the vast and spacious African veld, and shows a sensitive observation of cloud formations and the influence of the sky on the landscape.

He has exhibited regularly in major centres. His work, much sought-after by both local and overseas collectors, reflects the subtle, poetic moods of nature that interest him more than dramatic and highly colourful subjects. The subtle and poetic moods of nature interest him more than the dramatic and highly colourful, and it is his delicate rendering of these moods that has become a hallmark of his style.
