About the work
This is the most recent painting for my “VorteXes” series that I started creating in 2019. These vortexes are are in fact a depiction of swirling centers of energy that can be found anywhere on the Earth and beyond. "Shine Your Light" has very high vibrations, it inspires and uplifts.
About the artist
Cristina Balan is an abstract expressionist artist. Born in Moldova, she studied arts from the age of five. Very early on, her works were exhibited at various artistic performances in Moldova and abroad. The fall of the Soviet Union paused Cristina’s creative ascension and after graduating the school of fine arts, she had to work to be able to support herself. In her thirties, she became a prominent business community leader, and in early forties was appointed as the Ambassador to the United States.
In 2019, Cristina returned full-time to art, her abstract paintings being quickly noticed and appreciated by the public. Contemporary art magazines including Diafano (Spain), Art Hole, and Boomer Magazine (UK) featured her works. The art experts tagged her as a “smash-hit-ho-be” and her paintings have been displayed in art shows in Washington D.C. and New York City. Cristina’s works are currently featured by galleries from New York, Tokyo and Barcelona.
“I aspire to create art that captures the essence of life and create bridges from the unseen to that what is seen. My paintings are mirrors in which one can see their reflection and feel the connection with their primeval origins.”
