Independent Melbourne artist transforms his suburban experience into primal, deeply affecting work — C. Yestadt

Like many visual artists I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. Since the early ‘90s I’ve been exhibiting my art. For over 20 years I’ve worked as a graphic designer which has given me a deep understanding of visual communication. 

Although my themes are universal, it’s often difficult to divorce the work from the suburbs where it’s created.

Expressive mark making gives my subjects a kind of wild energy. That’s important when I’m trying to convey a raw emotion. The work polarises most who see it, they either love it or fear it. I can’t control what they feel, I’m just glad the audience is moved.

I want my work to serve as a reminder of the immense power, vulnerability and mystery of being human.
