Christopher Banahan (born 9 April 1958) is an Irish painter based in Galway.

Born in Nottingham to Irish parents, Banahan took a first class honours degree in fine arts at Nottingham Trent University in 1981. He went on to take an MA at Goldsmiths College in London and received a 'Rome award in Painting' Scholar in the British School at Rome in October 1990.[1]

Banahan's work has been heavily influenced by Rome, often portraying an 'aged' feel. He has lived in Ireland since 1993, and has received awards from the Arts Council of Ireland. He has exhibited throughout Ireland and in parts of the USA.[2] Banahan has also represented Ireland in international exhibitions, such as 'Metaphor for Ireland: Paintings, Poetic's and the Old Sod' at the Fuller gallery, Boston University, 1997 and 'Contemporary Art from Ireland' European Central Bank, Frankfurt, Germany, 2005.[3]Template:Better source

His painting, "Palatine" (1985) is in the collection of the London Borough of Camden. [4]

In 2013 he was awarded an M.A. in Production and Direction from Huston Film School of Digital Media, NUIG Galway, Ireland.[no citations needed here]
