The COS Art Gallery is proud to feature the work of Crystal Galindo for our first show of the spring 2014 semester! The exhibition, “Multifacetica: Un Cambio de Paradigma,” which translates to Multifaceted: A Paradigm Shift, features large and vibrant paintings that are full of life. Galindo’s work focuses on realistic portraiture combined with an assortment of patterns, landscapes and iconic symbols that tell the story of each person being portrayed.
Galindo was born and raised in the Tulare County and graduated from College of the Sequoias in 2009. She went on to obtain her BFA degree in painting and her BA degree in Chicano Studies from Sonoma State University. She has thrived in different art scenes, showing in a variety of galleries such as the Chimmaya Gallery in Los Angels and the Amor Eterno Gallery in Oakland.
“It has been a goal of mine to have a show in Tulare County where I was born and raised and at the place where I began to pursue my career as an artist,” says Galindo. You may keep up with Crystal Galindo’s art at: www.facebook.com/crystalgalindoart.
