Donovan Christie Visual Artist

"I so frequently find myself standing still and appreciating the things people take for granted in life."
Sinking my teeth into the new series titled ‘Frontin’. The series will be focussing on Adelaide’s famous and forgotten buildings and shop fronts. These already look to be my best works to date. Toot toot! 🎺 #donovanchristie #visualartist #art #painting #shopfronts #studio #adelaide #workinprogress

Went to Omar Musa’s book launch last night, it was such an inspiring night, with spoken word performed by himself, @dialectington_ave, Prime and Andrew Bovell.
