Studio Chirnside is the multidisciplinary practice of Australian Artist, Designer & Creative Director, Sam Chirnside, currently based in Melbourne, formerly New York & Amsterdam.

Blurring the line between physical and digital practice, Chirnside explores the intersection between art & design. His artwork has been described as “A mixing of natural elements with cosmic & spiritual phenomena that aims to delve beyond the edges of consciousness, exploring areas of order & incomprehension.” Through the use of mixed media techniques, his artwork is an exploration of the fields that exist beyond mind's
eye.

Challenging the viewer to see his works as the color and form sound waves would transmit could they be interpreted on the visual plane, Chirnside aims to lessen the distance between the visual and aural senses. Understanding that at the base of all communications are wave lengths and vibrations, it is the artists hope that he may blur the lines between the two interconnected but disparate forms of communication to a point of no return.
