Chris Corish has been practicing art since 2013 and has expanded his practice in recent years. Having studied Fine Arts at Aberystwyth University in Wales and Museum Studies at the University of Leeds in England, Chris has varied experience across the cultural and heritage sector.
His painting and digital work explores the relationship of colours and shapes, drawing on influences from modern and postmodern visual art. Currently based in Queensland, he is beginning to break out into the Australian art scene.
