Chris Denovan

Chris Denovan was born in Cape Town, South Africa, where he still lives & works. In 2005 he graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art (majoring in Painting and Printmaking) from the Ruth Prowse School of Art. Denovan then went on to study at The Animation School in 2006. He also went on to win The Best Concept Characters Prize during his time at the institute. Denovan’s work draws on various aesthetic influences from pre-Modern portraiture, which instigates a commentary on the idea of portrait-making, and what it means in a contemporary world full of digital self-identification and self-imaging.
