In 2016, he completed PhD (art) at the RMIT University in Melbourne. Chris primarily uses 3D printing technology to make his jewellery. Chris has exhibited in Japan, Europe and at home in Australia.

Technology provides Bahng with a palette of new possibilities and enables him to create innovative jewellery and objects. HIs current interests explore algorithms to reflect on what a digital tool would assist to expand artist’s creativity.
