TESTIMONIALS

"[Christopher renders] the raw, everyday urban landscapes [of his artworks] using a variety of confident, energetic marks, with minimal colour, that drag the viewer into the grey spaces and almost demand that we see the beauty there."

Emerge Youth Art Awards Judges' Panel, 2023


"[Christopher's artworks are] an unfussy handling of a classic subject. Energetic lines and broken strokes give a sense of movement and leave space for the imagination."

Beverley Art Prize Judges' Panel, 2023


"Christopher captures graffitied trains in remarkable detail and flair. These paintings show a deep love for the culture of trains, a symbol of transport and durability across this vast [Australian] continent, and the act of graffiti, a suburban form of self-expression."

City of Joondalup Visual Arts Team, 2022


"Christopher has a very deliberate and meticulous approach to his art-making and is very confident and firm in his artistic decision-making, not compromising for anyone or anything."

Prendiville Catholic College Community Engagement Team, 2021
