Cristina de Miguel received her BFA from the University of Seville, Spain in 2010, MFA from Pratt Institute in 2012. She is an artist that’s known for her ebulliently expressive paintings with street art flair. The Spanish-born painter’s mysterious and personal iconography alludes to mythology and allegory, despite rejecting any fixed meanings and interpretations of her work. De Miguel’s diverse range of interests is both eclectic and unexpected; she draws equally from Baroque painting and graffiti. De Miguel lives and works in Queens, New York.
