In the mid-1970s, Chrisp's artistic journey led him to Paris, France, where he enrolled in the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Prior to this, he had diligently learned French and Italian during his studies at Victoria University. It was during his time in Europe that he began honing his skills as a watercolour artist. Chrisp, also fluent in Italian spent time in Italy in the 1970’s and his inspiration today continues to capture his memories, friendships, connections and colours of Europe.
The Seine remains central to French life, culture and identity. The port of Le Havre at the mouth of the Seine is France's largest international shipping port, and the river runs through the wealthiest and most populated of the 27 administrative regions of France, known as Île-de-France or the Paris Region.
The Seine River is located in France and runs through the capital city of Paris. The Seine runs for 485 miles under 37 bridges and through multiple locks. The river is used daily for water consumption, shipping, and tourism.
Chrisp's work has been likened to artists David Jones, Matisse, Raoul Dufy and Cezanne, showcasing an energetic personality evident in his interior, landscape and floral paintings.
