Christophe Canato is a French-Australian photo-media artist who was accepted to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris at 17 and relocated to Perth in 2005.
Canato’s impeccably crafted and moving works explore social issues including politics and religion, physical identities and sexual orientations.
KolbuszSpace is proud to offer a studio-direct, limited release of his Anima series which examines male roles and identities in our contemporary western contexts.
This exhibition is a remarkable achievement. Each image is carefully wrought, a technical tour de force by a master of his craft. As Jean Cocteau explained “Art is a lie that always speaks the truth” and in this group of works Christophe Canato presents us with a series of elegantly constructed truths that are impossible to ignore.” TED SNELL, AM CitWA
