Chris Furby: Artist, curator, filmmaker, and photographer.
Educated at Camberwell School of Art, London. BA 3D Design. Worked in Community Art at the Great Georges Community Cultural Project in Liverpool for two years. I had my first experiences of using video there. Worked as an assistant to a sculptor. Then as a graphic designer at the fringes of the music industry producing many designs as the Art Koop with Chris Kennedy at Better Badges - we were hardly paid at the time but this work has now become collectible. Then as a contributor of satirical and weirdly humorous photomontage to various magazines. Commissioned by Channel 4 TV to make video pilot in its early years.
Since 2002 have concentrated on the production of short and feature digital films. Associated in the past with the artist’s film website Tank TV when Laure Prouvost was the editor, until it was discontinued . My work has been shown in many film festivals and art venues around the world.
Lives in London.
Asked by the director of flEXiff Sydney I served on the animation jury of the 38th Roshd International Film Festival. Tehran, Iran. November 1st.-7th. 2008.
2011-12 Co-Founder of the ‘Outhouse Cinema’ at the Milgi Lounge in Cardiff. Curated the first three video art programmes.
