Growing up in more than one culture can be enriching.
Take Christina Hoffmann: Up until seven years ago, this up-and-coming artist has spent her life in Germany and Greece. As a bilingual career woman with a background in arts and mathematics, Christina is a natural when it comes to maneuvering in multiple societies.
When she moved to Zürich in 2009, Christina Hoffmann arrived with her easel, an empty canvas and acrylic paint in all the rainbow’s colors. Also, she brought a bundle of experience in hosting art exhibits.
Where is home?
Those who grew up on the intersection of multiple cultures can probably relate: When it comes to answering life’s big questions, things can get tricky.
Christina soon began to express her feelings about identity on canvas. Over the years, she has produced dozens of abstract works dealing with the overarching theme of identity.
Some of the topics throughout Christina’s art include a yearning for home, a study on separation and finally, her personal transformation.
We are curious to see the paintings in real life (Christina frequently posts them on her Facebook page). Her latest exhibit opens in Zürich on Sept 15, and you will definitively find us there!
RSVP for the opening event on Sept 15 (5 PM open ended)
