Medway artist Christopher Sacre is setting out on one of his biggest challenges yet – cycling to Paris from London in aid of the disability arts lead charity Shape Arts.
Having established himself on the arts scene locally, Chris’ big breakthrough came in October 2010, after discovering a happy marriage between condoms and plaster. ‘See what this man gave birth to after using 2000 condoms in 22 days’ is an extraordinary installation of 2000 of his plaster ‘babies’ which form the basis of his project ‘Adoption’. Find out more on his website.
Super-busy work-wise and having begun work on the In-SITE Artist Commission, Chris already has another commission lined for for 2016. He says: “I plan to tackle the 300 mile London to Paris bike ride this April 2015, raising money for Shape Arts, which has played an important role in my development as an artist since 2000. Please dig deep and help me to raise my £1500 target!”
