The Australian painter, Christopher Dean graduated from the University of Sydney in 1986 with a BFA, and later graduated from the Sydney College of the Arts in 1991 with a MFA in painting. Dean’s projects discuss issues in contemporary art with an emphasis on the historical and theoretical debates surrounding abstraction. He has been exhibiting regularly since 1988 in over twenty artist run spaces throughout Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, USA and UK. Dean has also exhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW, the Museum of Contemporary Art and The National Gallery, Canberra. In 2001, Dean was the recipient of the Australia Council’s studio grant for his artist-in-residence program at 18th Street.
