Chris Newman (b.1958) is an experimental interdisciplinary artist working the mediums of music, painting, video, drawing and literature. He studied music at King’s College London. During this time he met the Russian poet Eugene Dubnov and started to translate Russian poets (Osip Mandelstam, Velimir Khlebnikov), this process of translating proving important for his later work (eg from one medium to another / from life to art).
Newman moved to Cologne, Germany, in 1980 to study with Mauricio Kagel. He founded chamber-punk rock band Janet Smith in 1983 and met Morton Feldman in 1984.
Since the beginning of the 1980s, Newman’s music pieces have been performed at concerts and festivals and recorded for radio productions. He now lives in Berlin.
