Cristina Guerrero was born in San Sebastian (Spain) 1979.

She had her first contact with the oil technique in 1988 al the academy of the painter Xabier Obeso, located in Errenteria were the artist resides. It was formed, until arriving at the university in 1997. She graduated in Fine Arts at the "University of the Basque Country" in 2002. This training has been complemented with studies and degrees in design, photography and lighting, which she uses as essential tool for her work. Since 2004 she has established herself on the International Art Scene through individual and collective exhibitions at different international fairs.


Cristina Guerrero in her diptychs combines objects from her personal and daily life with details of her body or the body of her partner or even her children. During this process, he discovers a correspondence between shapes, colors and appearances that helps him to create new associations. Guerrero thus prefers realistic representation, oil paintings that are characterized by their fidelity to detail and a truthful use of light and shadow. The items of clothing, food, jewelry and other accessories portrayed were personally collected by the artist, both from her travels and from day-to-day purchases. However, she deprives them of their essential characteristics and transfers the observer's interpretation to them, while maintaining a relationship with herself, with her own life and environment, establishing a link between the object and its anatomy. Cristina Guerrero creates images that at first glance give the illusion of a reflection, being in reality approximations and analogies that are not entirely evident from the start. It is the artist's gaze that reveals the link between life and the environment, personality and object, the body and nature. Thus arise diverse and heterogeneous connections that oscillate between logical objects, a dramatic interpretation and the daring exaggeration. The impeccable execution, in oil, gives his paintings a fascinating appeal that is difficult to escape. Fresh and imaginative, his work is also an analysis of the relationship between the image-icon and the society of the 21st century and provides a renewed vision of the validity and topicality of realism.
