The World of Chris Kenyon
What I have been up to recently is for the last year and a half I completed
one of the largest commissions to come out of Australia.
250 paintings for 6 star “Kokomo Private Island Resort” Fiji.
A large studio was built for me on the Island and every thing I needed was flown
out from Australia. I did all the paintings on the Island
The largest painting was 3m x 10m entry to the Resort, many paintings
were 2m x 4m, 3m square and 2m square.
The dream of every artist.
I am currently working on a exhibition on the sites of “Ben Hall” outlaw Bushranger.
I spent 2 years researching the life and sites of his life. With help from his family.
Painting as they are today with the feeling of what happened there in his time.
Traveling to each site and doing my sketches and photographs, completing
each painting in my studio at Berowra Waters.
22 paintings. Opening mid June this year in Canowindra and Forbes NSW.
The area where most of his life and crimes were committed.
