Kristina Kerstner aka Kristina Kushnarova is a digital artist and animator from Kiev, Ukraine. She enjoys the process of creating imagery digitally. Kristina's paintings often depict portraits, but these are rarely based on a particular person. Represented figures are a composition of numerous characters – a collective image of many, including herself. These carefully crafted, imaginary people can in her mind, more precisely represent the atmosphere and mood of the picture, that she wants to illustrate. Her body of work has a peculiar and melancholic tone, and her visuals reflect her fascination with the beauty of imperfection and the fleeting moment.
