The Engineer

By Christopher Johnson

oil on canvas
31x31cm framed

Christopher’s artistic practice is primarily figurative oil paintings. Much of Chris’ inspiration comes from the Australian landscape drawing on regional Victoria and comparing it to the Canadian setting he grew up in. Canada, like Australia is a vast and open country but the colours found in nature are so different. Chris draws on the colours found in Canada and use them in his Australian landscape paintings.

Many of the themes in Chris’ paintings are based on his heritage and life experiences in Australia. These experiences and his artistic process drive the narrative in the paintings permitting for illusory and colourful compositions.
