Christina Malbek (1971) works with large scale and is one of the most innovative and talented contemporary landscape painters. To this deeply traditional subject matter she brings the airbrush techniques of graffiti and the tools of digital media, giving it an intensity and relevance rarely seen today. Thematically, Malbek´s work addresses visual and technological culture while refusing simplistic interpretation. Her fragmented vision and use of a vivid palette create surprising compositions that are rich in contrast, coloring the apparently romantic landscape with complexity, unease, and mystery.
Christina Malbek graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2003. Since then, she has exhibited in such venues as Kim Light/ LightBox in Los Angeles, Transit Art Space in Stavanger, Norway, Göteborgs Konsthall in Sweden, and the Mexican national museum Museo de San Carlos. She is represented in several major international collections, including Arken Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
