Chris O’Doherty (also known as Reg Mombassa) was born in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1951 and migrated to Australia in 1969. He has been collaborating with the Australian firm Mambo, giving life to the Australian Jesus, a three-eyed guru who speeds up on a golden motorcycle, and to skeleton cars and trucks resting on a poetic landscape.

His work has been exhibited all over the world. Mombassa, who happens to be also a gifted rock star in the group Mental As Anything, is a super nice, down to earth, guy.
