Chris Levine is best known for his portrait titled Lightness of Being, an extraordinarily intimate picture of Her Majesty the Queen with her eyes closed. After studying at Chelsea School of Arts and Central Saint Martin’s, Levine has gone on to become a pioneer in using light and lighting technology to push the boundaries of the visual experience in art. He has artwork currently displayed in the National Portrait Gallery, London’s Science Museum, and has staged light performances at MoMA in New York.
