Christopher 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 recent composite portraits are created from various images sourced from the web. The idea is to create fictional identities and inject “life” into them, thus giving them “personhood”, exploring notions around the act of portrayal.
