Christian Donlan



1 - 31 July 2023

Christian Donlan McMahon who goes by the artist name ‘Works by Christian’. His passion for art began at an early age, drawing inspiration from the popular culture that was part of his childhood. This interest translated well to graffiti and street art, and from his early teens he was an active contributor towards Melbourne’s active Graffiti landscape. 

Through his  skills moving between commercial projects and more informal aerosol based projects he has built a universe around his practices that see him working between commissioned painting projects, commercial design projects and, importantly, mentoring and educational work. 

His residency journey for four weeks in Ketemu was packed, where he met with various art communities in the city and spent most of his time in the making of his artworks that will be displayed in his solo exhibition in Melbourne titled “Perfectly Imperfect”.
