Cedric Christie

Born 1962 in London, United Kingdom



Before becoming an artist, Cedric Christie was a welder. Highly skilled and meticulous, he explores the artistic potential of every day materials, transforming seemingly mundane objects in to beautiful works of art. Steel rods, shiny plastics, brick, brush and scaffolding have all been experimented with and pushed to their limits. The end results have been striking works that are imbedded with political, social and cultural meaning.
