CHRISTINE DAS(.1966) is a Malaysian born wildlife conservation artist who schooled at Convent Green Lane Penang and obtained her formal arts education in graphic design at the Sain Academy of Arts Penang. The path that has led her to becoming a contemporary artist traversed through several artistic vocations.
Christine works mostly with acrylic on canvas. Her paintings have been influenced and inspired by The Natural World captured through patient stroke-by-stroke immersion to capture the essence of movement, sound and events of the environment. Every unbroken line represents natures ever flowing life force.
Conservation of Wildlife is something that has become close to Christine’s heart: her mission and life purpose. It is another key reason why nature features prominently in her art.
Her personal passion is the Conservation of Bornean Elephants & wildlife Christine works with various local conservation NGOs including Borneo Conservation Trust Sabah, Ecomy, DGFC and WWF Malaysia in support of this cause. She uses art as a voice to create awareness and raise funds whenever possible esp. For rewilding efforts.

For her work as a wildlife conservation artist, Christine has won an award and received numerous accolades. She has exhibited extensively locally & internationally.
