Christophe Canato is a French-Australian photo-media artist who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris before relocating to Perth in 2005.
Canato’s impeccably crafted and moving works explore social issues including politics and religion, physical identities and sexual orientations. His most recent work examines male roles and identities in our contemporary western contexts.
“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
