Cedric Christie is a London-based artist who trained originally as a welder. His current studio, housed within a commercial metal fabrication factory, is located in the East London suburb of Dagenham – historically the home of the Ford Motor Factory. Christie uses found industrial materials such as phenolic resin snooker balls, scaffolding pipes, coupler clamps, stainless steel channel, steel U-channel and cellulose automotive paint to make sculptures that mirror daily life while simultaneously exploring the boundaries of modernism and minimalism. Projects at Art Chicago (1999) and Art Forum Berlin (2001) brought Christie international recognition. In the subsequent two decades he has exhibited in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Croatia and the USA. His work can be found in significant institutional and corporate collections including Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Canada; Derwent London, UK; Brown Rudnick, Boston/London; BUPA, London; and Groucho Club, London. Recent commissions include substantial sculptures in contemporary architectural settings at 4o Strand, London and The Peak, Victoria, London.
