Love and creativity is all we need
My background is in art exhibitions, art commissions and teaching media arts and technology at university programs. Since 2016 I’ve been building online businesses, raising a family and building the capacity to do interesting things.
Christopher Fulham is an Australian artist working in the mixed media realm –incorporating photography, video, new media technologies and sculptural installations. For more than twenty years he wrote and taught in the arts and the higher education sector, notably ten as an arts lecturer with the Australian National University (ANU). His love and drive for both his art practice, ideas and for engaging students to achieve their own idea of success have kept him invested.
He has won multiple public art commissions, including a 100K video art commission to fly drones in Australia's Pilbara region, two major video art commissions (ARC Cinema and Experimenta Media Arts), and a photographic commission for Calvary Hospital. His video artwork and photographs have been exhibited internationally and I've been featured in numerous art prizes and awards.
Christopher was tenured at the Australian National University as a media arts lecturer for a decade. I've also after taught extensively in digital media arts for colleges and universities across Australia.
Christopher has a diploma in audio engineering, and commercial pilot and drone pilot licenses (7-20kg drones / CASA). He has flown drones commercially all over Australia.
