- About -

Anto Christ is a Maltese-born, Australian-raised artist whose body of work incorporates varying media including crochet, painting, photography, make-up, costume, video, performance and installation. Innovative and experimental, she speaks from a surrealist perspective that presents in psychedelic, shape-shifting forms. Her paintings of multi-layered images, splats and drawn detail come to life before your eyes. Like cloud watching, Anto Christ’s paintings are open to be interpreted differently by each viewer. Anto Christ is motivated by her desire to break through modern-day boundaries of excessively rational, traditional and conservative thought, resulting in a challenging and thought-provoking quality to her work. Graduating from COFA with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2010, Anto Christ’s work continues to evolve. This evolution reveals an ever-changing alternate universe of intricate detail and pure colour explosion. As the creator of her own universe, Anto Christ brings her own fantastical world to life. This can be seen in her original painted characters making their transformation into stunning, painstakingly handcrafted 3-dimensional crocheted creatures. In addition to her many artistic endeavours, Anto Christ keeps busy as co-founder and co-organiser of The Colour Parade and The Carnival of Electric Illusions. The Colour Parade has been active annually in Sydney and Melbourne since 2007, with international focus commencing in 2013. Like her performance installations, these events aim to bring people together through an appreciation of colour, open-mindedness and diversity. Anto Christ’s vision operates on directly questioning the status quo and addressing negative values and patterns of thought within society. Currently based in Berlin, Anto Christ’s distinctively original style is constantly evolving and inspiring others as she brings them together through an active curiosity of the world.
