Ones to Watch: Chico Cristobal

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The brightly geometric works of Sydney-based Filipino artist Chico Cristobal are deeply informed by his academic history. With a background in interior design, the artist brings a retro-vintage aesthetic to his practice and couples it with an interest in the idea of the mathematic golden ratio. For Chico, the canvas is a means of communication, used mostly to express ideas relating to nature or music. Despite being underpinned by more serious philosophical concepts, the playful shapes and colours come together in an abstracted style that is open to interpretation, accessible to a universal audience who derives joy from beauty.
