KRISTINA COLLANTES: AN IMAGINATIVE APPROACH



CLAIRE BOUCHER aka GRIMES


 Collantes moved to the U.S. in 1997 with her family from the Philippines to bright and sunny Southern California, where her talent and ambitions flourished.  Her illustrations are widely lauded and have been featured in an assortment of publications from Vice Magazine to The New Yorker.  

Colorful and engaging, her work possesses a certain weight that rival even the most stoic black and white, high contrast image. I was particularly drawn to her portrait series which lends a specific aura to each subject.  Check the Portrait images below and the rest of her work here.
