Chris is a Wanyi Garawa Isle of Man person and was bought up walking between cultures. Coming from North Queensland he now calls South Australia home and continues to practice his culture every day. In 1999 Chris joined an Aboriginal art group called Black Cockatoo. Since that time, he has grown as an artist and cultural person, exhibiting and selling his art widely around the world. Inspired by his connection to country, Chris is constantly challenging himself to learn new techniques and think outside the box. Creating spaces and telling stories Chris continues to evolve as an artist. Working with projections, sound and image the list of mediums is extensive. Painting mostly in acrylic, ochre and watercolours he is also a producer of radio and is often seen recording the world around him.
