Chatten was born in Gorleston in 1938. A keen interest in nature led to his first job with the Forestry Commission. In 1960 he was encouraged to start painting, and has been a professional painter ever since.

Chatten paints landscapes, seascapes and coastal scenes in oil- and over the past 30years has developed and mastered a technique of painting which is completely his own. The intimate quality of his work displays a freedom of personal expression and exploration and his paintings show a great ability to capture the feeling and atmosphere of his subject.

Still living and working in Norfolk he regularly exhibits in East Anglia, nationally and internationally. Chatten was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1994.

Exhibitions at:

  • Royal Academy
  • Royal Society of British Artists
  • The Maritime Trust
  • Royal Institute of Oil Painters

His work is found in many private collections in the United Kingdom, and the USA and his work has been commissioned by The Maritime Trust. 

Geoffrey Chatten has had one man shows at the prestigious New Orleans gallery ‘Dixon and Dixon’ and joint exhibitions at the Bruton Street Gallery in Mayfair.
