The Baron Gilvan


The Baron is the creation of the British artist Chris Gilvan-Cartwright. Originally conceived as a conduit for his own creativity, The Baron is the governor of all Chris’s works, the character through which it all must flow.

A dispossessed Mitteleuropa aristocrat, landed up on the shores of Blighty clutching only his paintings and his hopes, the Baron is concerned with only the intensity of life itself, and the beauty of the ideal. He is raw, unflinching, and utterly sincere, a compact of all that is magnificent.
