Wayne Chisnall was born in Shropshire, England. Before moving to London in 1999 he had been a technical illustrator for a Japanese company, a magazine illustrator, studied printmaking at Bourneville and then moved into sculpting during his time studying fine art at Northampton University.
In 2005 he was awarded a bursary from the Royal British Society of Sculptors and is now an RBS member.
As well as his work appearing in galleries, magazines and on TV (including BBC 2’s ‘The Culture Show’, Channel 4 News, and Channel 4’s ‘Four Rooms’), his sculptures have appeared in the feature film, ‘Scratch’, directed by Jakob Rørvik. In 2013 he was also commissioned to produce a series of paintings for the horror film ‘Bliaze of Gory’.
John Malkovich chose Chisnall’s script, ‘Doppelganger’, as the winning entry in the 2008 Sony VAIO Scriptwriting competition. This script, along with Malkovich’s and two others was then turned into the short animated film, ‘Snow Angel’.
“ … I’m going to go with the “Doppelganger” script. It’s clever, inventive, and somehow both surprising and inevitable. Very neatly done all in all.” John Malkovich (4th Jan. 2008).
Recently Chisnall has been commissioned to produce design work for architect and interior design firms; having just completed the graphic work used for the interior of the new Ping Pong restaurant adjacent to Wembley Stadium.
The artist is currently working on a new body of work that crosses the disciplines of both sculpture and drawing.
