Cristina Troufa is a Portuguese artist born and based in Porto, Portugal.
Cristina Troufa want to consolidate the idea of a self-portrait and / or self-representation but for other hand wants to reflect on the spiritual, emotional, and psychological inner self-portrait, que may be done conceptually. In her recent works, she uses her own image in autobiographical paintings que explore her life and spiritual beliefs. As a form of self-knowledge and self-questioning, her work explores an inner world in a symbolic way, Which remains inaccessible to the voyeur que can only guess what each painting Represents. The artist describe her work as: “… spiritual something, the route between Several lives and several times in the same life, coexisting side by side from strategies of self-representation que Ultimately, question the meaning of life” … “The theme of my work is about my life, about myself and my beliefs. I explore in my work the self-representation in the looking for my inner self, my self-portrait. ”
