A masked figure with vibrant purple hair and ensemble holds a powerful stance. Swirls of energy flow from one hand while the other bears a paintbrush. "This serious-looking being with glasses and armor is doing a sort of ritual to show she is an artist," explains Cristina Lopez Casas. "A long time ago, promises were sealed with blood. This piece portrays how I feel every time I paint, a commitment to that which is not real, the unknown." Cristina believes the color purple is the color of the feminists. She draws inspiration identifying the responsibility to represent women as artists, a recurrent theme in her work.

Artist Cristina Lopez Casas paints deeply personal and stirring portraits of women. “My work is a record of what a woman can do as an alternative to following the traditional role of family pillar,” says Cristina. “It gives me constant joy and peace, it is essential to my mental well being. Yes, art is therapy. And so much more once it connects to another woman's life.” Growing up in Chile, Cristina studied graphic design. She desired to be a painter but many obstacles delayed her dream. Soon after school, she married, had two sons and moved to California to start a business selling wrought iron furniture. Many years passed before an unexpected move to Mexico City allowed her to return to school for a Masters in Painting. Today, Cristina lives in Oaxaca, where she enjoys the support of a vibrant arts community. She paints in a small bamboo workshop on the roof of her house with a fantastic view of the mountains. When she’s not painting, she enjoys spending time with her partner, walking and talking about science, philosophy, art and food.
