Christopher Zanko’s practice explores the setting and structure of coastal architecture. Combining woodcarving and printmaking with painting, his technique works with texture and dramatic tonal contrast. The setting for each of these building portraits is typically a blue sky and strong light. His work reflects on the current state of local infrastructure with reference to past use and future potential. Zanko graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Arts, Wollongong University with Distinction in Painting (BCA).
