Christopher Dear began art as a vocation in 1994 and is now in his 23rd year as an artist and fashion designer. Exhibiting in galleries, music events and public spaces across Australia, LA, Miami, Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica and England. He became involved with the music industry at an early stage of his career and started producing large-scale artworks for music events. This began the journey of his art and music being intertwined and working in unison together. Chris' paintings and designs are musically synaesthetic and when exhibited in tandem with professional music, of all varieties, the sounds cascade though the design and resonate in the patterns, enabling the viewer to have a multi-levelled synaesthetic response. With a Modern futurist style his paintings radiate vibrancy and colour. Creating quadriptych canvases and mixed media works adorned with gold leaf, the canvases have reflective and illusionistic qualities.
