Christian Vistan is a Filipino-Canadian artist originally from the Bataan Peninsula. He currently lives and works in Nanaimo, BC, on traditional Snuneymuxw territory. He makes paintings and texts that are hybrid in form, responding to the embodied processes and experiences of diaspora. His work has been shown in Canada, the US and the Philippines. Recent projects include Pa-pag-page (2018), an installation and publication centring a papag, a bamboo daybed, as a structure for the assembly and expressions of publics, presented at Richmond Art Gallery and Centre A; and a lot, a lot (2018), an artist book that cites and supplements a poem, Immigrant Daughter, written by his sister, Wendel Vistan, and published by Artspeak.
