About Cristian Rivas

Cristian was born and raised in Southern California. She grew up in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood in the sunny, seaside-city of Oxnard. Cristian recalls always knowing she wanted to be an artist, “…desde chiquitita”. With musicians and woodworking artists going back many generations in her family, she did not have to look far for inspiration and role models.

Currently the self-taught artist continues to reside in Southern California. This is where she continues to explore her medium with paintings that offer the viewer a glimpse of who she is. The surrealist landscapes in her work serve not only as a window, but as a mirror for the viewer to look inward as well.
