Christen Tynan emerged as a full-time visual artist in 2022 as part of the highly acclaimed keynote Midsumma exhibition, Queer My Head. They are a current recipient of Creators Fund 2022, developing methodologies to represent the diversity of disabled, queer and gender-diverse folklore within their work.

Tynan’s work is delineated by roughly-hewn, tongue-in-cheek relief prints, and an ongoing exploration of classical painting and drawing mediums. Both aspects of expression gather in and project out, by interweaving queer and disabled experiences with folklore and romance.


Tynan works on Wurundjeri land. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
