Cristina BanBan is a painter known for her colorful and figurative work depicting large human bodies and individual's narratives.

Through a complex proccess of addition and removal, her paintings have become a portrait of the society that she is involved in. Her subjects range from the real street scenes and situations she encounters to her doubts, fears and difficulties. BanBan's paintings explore the struggles and victories of everyday life. One of the most characteristic aspects is the different dimensions that are present within the work; the deliberate plane of the image, elements that appear to float outside of that plane and in places simply the dimension formed by the act of painting and repainting itself. Here the energetic brushstrokes and density of the acrylic depart from formal meaning. Saturated and strongly contrasting colors are distributed instinctively between these different dimensions, compiling all of BanBan’s curious components in one vision.

In 2016, the artist was awarded with the Hackney Wicked Art Prize, recognizing her practice among a selection of fellow artists based in the East End. BanBan has exhibited in individual and group exhibitions in London and it is currently preparing for solo shows in UK and Spain.
