Chris was selected as the stage 3 winner of the Step By Step international competition, hosted by IWS Poland. The competition requires artists to photograph their painting at 5-7 steps of the creation process and include a list of all materials used. There are 4 stages of the competition with the 5th stage being selection of overall winners from the 4 stages and publication of the catalogue.

Chris’s painting, Shanghai Showers, was selected as the winner of stage 3. Chris was also selected as a finalist for the 2nd step and is proud to have had several other South African artists selected as finalists.
