Biography

Since joining the Intoart studio in 2013, Christian Ovonlen has developed work that responds to his interest in Pop visual culture and the history of fashion and costume. He was selected for Studio Voltaire’s Open 2015 by artist Cory Arcangel and Hanne Mugaas, Director of Kunsthall Stavanger. His intensely coloured and richly textured works on paper have recently been developed into printed silk, hand made garments. His drawings and garments express a strong sense of style and careful attention to detail.
