Christian Palmer 2011/12


pop-up gallery april 2012


Christian Palmer embraces the urban contemporary genre from a kind of mongrel fine art perspective. The work is a culmination of many years in the creative arts ranging from fine art to graphics, illustration and street art. Recent works reflects upon the irony of the human condition. Canvas, wood, street scapes, screenprints and giclees are all used to communicate lyrical art works, using a child’s writing, the most elementary graffiti ....

“Dogs of perception”


Originally from the U.K, Christian Palmer emigrated to Australia in 2001 and lives in Byron Bay. His time is divided between Byron and Sydney. His early years were spent in London. Later he moved between Europe and Hong Kong. Central St. Martins followed immediately after studies in Art, Theology and English Literature. After Central Saint Martins College, Palmer travelled extensively in South America, Africa and Asia and eventually landed in Malta experimenting with painting on the idyllic Mediterranean isle of Gozo in collaboration with a group of like minded artists as well as setting up a boutique graphic design company. Five years later he moved to Byron and self published ‘Byron Bay Diaries’ photographic journal and began to work professionally as a painter. After several exhibitions in Sydney he is now represented in London @ Graffik Gallery, specialists in urban contemporary art and is represented by Urban Uprising in Sydney for the Outpost Street Art festival 2011 and UPRAW gallery (sister gallery to Art Equity) for Online sales 2012 and Arts Fairs.
