27th April - 28th May 2022

Doubtfire gallery presents the first solo exhibition of a stunning collection of art by Christian Moore, a talented young designer, illustrator and artist. This exhibition is a selection of pieces that represent Christian’s transition over a five year period, from working as a commercial fashion illustrator to creating his own distinctive personal art. The focus moves from couture into abstract figure studies, and from there it flows into his exploration of incorporating metals and organic materials, as well as developing rich backgrounds through texture and depth of paint.

Christian Moore

Christian Moore was born in 1981 on the Wirral in Northwest England, which is also where he grew up. After studying art at school and business at Liverpool University, the strength of his portfolio earned him a position on the roster of a leading illustration agent in London, where he worked for a decade. During that time, he had the privilege of producing creative work for many notable fashion brands and magazines, such as Chanel, Tatler, Hugo Boss, Vogue and many more.

Christian made the decision to leave London and move to Edinburgh in 2019, and then Perthshire in 2021 to raise his family. The change of lifestyle and his immersion in the beauty of the nature around him inspired him to experiment with different mediums. This allowed him to further develop his distinctive style and also to build up a collection of beautifully presented art for exhibition.

As with his earlier illustrative work, his canvas pieces remain true to his overall 'less is more' approach. They embody his sense of style and celebrate both beauty and imperfection.
