Born in northern California, Abkin relocated to Australia in 2003. After studying painting at the California Institute of the Arts and then receiving a BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute, he dove into his practice with a highly-charged sense of place. Abkin describes himself as a "material led contemporary story-teller who creates work with an oblique familiarity, and subversive honesty." ⁠

His recent works reflect on the figure within the Australian landscape, and Abkin exhibited a series of works as part of group exhibition 'In the Thick of it' at The Third Quarter in October 2019.
