Christian McGinty is an artist working in Victoria, BC, on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations.  He is currently enrolled at the University of Victoria, where he is working towards his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Visual Arts.  He works primarily in photography and video art, where he often looks to historical art processes, moments, and ideas to explore themes of identity and self. 

Together with his art, he is also a knitwear designer.  In his design work, he regularly employs lace motifs as a means of telling stories and examining his land base in a more critical manner.  You can find his knitwear designs on Ravelry, under Hypnos Knits.
