Christopher Banahan was born in 1958 in Nottingham, United Kingdom. He received an MA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 1984. In 1990, he was awarded a Rome Scholarship in Painting at the British School at Rome.

He has works in many public collections, such as Microsoft Ireland, OPW, The Arts Council and the European Central Bank. His work has been selected for numerous open competitions such as EVA, COE, Iontas, and the RHA Annual.

His self portrait is shortlisted for the 2019 Zurich Portrait Prize at the National Gallery of Ireland, and his works are included in museum collections internationally, including the following:
Wexford Art Centre
Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda
Contemporary Arts Society
London Borough of Camden
British Council, Rome
Rockingham Castle

Banahan’s images reflect the fragility of life and the passage of time yet also the immortalizing of someone caught in their adolescence, transfixing the image of their youth into a timeless state.
