Christopher Waretini


At the age of 22 in 2004 Christopher had a motorcycle accident that resulted in tetraplegia spinal injury, affecting c5/c6.  This gives him limited or no function to hands and chest down.

Art has always been a passion to Christopher – all media, from charcoal to oils, as well as modelling compounds for textures and effect.

He has won a number of awards including the Bruce Hopkins Highly Commended and the Alex Craig Most promising in 2007.

Since then he has been doing painting for friends and family in demand.

Christopher was awarded Student Membership in 2011.
