Chris lost his mother at the age of 11 and from that time on could no longer attend school. When his older sister later married and moved to Port Moresby, she took Chris with her. In Moresby he met Mathias Kauage and enrolled in art school. After several years as a part time student, Chris Kauage received a scholarship to the Academy of Art, which he completed at the end of 1988. Chris is married and often his paintings depict family life and the relationship between the sexes. Although he was taken in by Mathias Kauage, Chris has secured his own technique of painting and there is really no resemblance between their work. Chris possesses his own individual style and has a tremendous natural talent.
