The New English

Chris Mars

Chris Mars (born 1961) is an American painter and musician. After a successful career in music (as a drummer in alternative rock bands 'the Replacements', then 'Golden Smog' and later with a solo career) he left music to concentrate on his artwork. His painting style, examples of which grace all of his album covers, is marked by nightmarish landscapes and grotesque, distorted figures. He draws inspiration from his older brother's struggle with schizophrenia. He generally likes to use oils or pastels, although he ventures into other media.
The artist has designed some very limited edition pieces exclusively for The New English. All pieces are made of Finest English Bone China and made in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
