Artcyclopedia : Kristin Texeira

The art world is so extensive, new artists are born every day. As Joseph Beuys and Pablo Picasso stated, everyone is born an artist, it’s the ones who maintain their abilities who grow into the form of an artist. The amount of people who do is immense, therefore I decided to start a new column on this blog, namely Artcyclopedia. It’s a way of storing my personal favourites in one place. I will do my best to share an artist that I admire once in a while.

I stumbled upon the work by Kristin Texeira a few weeks ago on Instagram. I immediately was fascinated by her use of colour. All her pieces might seem simple, but yet so complex. Every piece tells a story, “ I paint to capture, document, and preserve memories. I translate the essence of moments through color by mixing up the poetics of people and places. I retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching and writing.“.
