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.
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.
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.
