Singapore Board of Trustees
Chris Churcher, born in England, is the founder owner of REDSEA Gallery.
He started out in 1984 as a foreign exchange currency trader, a career which spanned eighteen years, during which he worked in London, New York and Singapore. The tragic events which took place in America on September 11th, 2001 gave him the wake up call he’d been waiting for in life. With a sea change, a leap of faith and the encouragement of his then girlfriend, now wife, Chris pursued his dream of going it alone. From it’s inauguration in 2002, he has created what has become one of Singapore’s leading art galleries and host to CFC's ArtAid events. His hobbies include off road cycling, cooking, discovering new artists and watching biographical movies. Chris is married to Charlie and they have three incredible daughters. He can often be found in his man shed with a bottle of red wine.
