Theo Crutchley-Mack is a contemporary British artist whose work appears in private and public collections throughout Europe. As a teenager Theo designed a 50 pence coin that was minted into national circulation with royal approval, sparking a clear artistic direction from a young age.
Since graduating from Falmouth University with a sell-out degree show, he has continued to exhibit successfully throughout Wales and Cornwall. Theo strives to record the obscure landscape, often abandoned and remote. He spends many hours outside drawing in sketchbooks that later become reference for larger studies. His studio paintings start out as deeply textured wooden bases that form the foundation for a sculptural approach to painting. In 2018 Theo was invited to the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia where he painted and documented the ruined whaling stations to help fundraise for the South Georgia Heritage Trust, who work to restore the damaged habitats of wildlife on the island.
