Christian HANSEN

(b. 1978, Melbourne, Victoria. Lives and works in Melbourne)

Christian Hansen is an emerging artist working primarily with acrylic, gouache, pencil and pastel on paper and canvas. With Australian and Romani cultural heritage, his work is symbolic and powerful, often commenting on the politics of colonialism. Recently, his practice has expanded to include other mediums such as ceramics and he is currently working on an autobiographical book that he has begun illustrating and plans to publish.

Hansen has worked in the Arts Project studio since 2017. He has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions and is a current member of The Northcote Penguins, an art collective formed in the Professional Practice Program at Arts Project Australia. His work is held in in private collections throughout Australia.
