Lights Out | Christina Kenton

Lights Out | Christina Kenton.

Christina Kenton is a self taught mixed media/ lighter centred artist from Vancouver BC. Christina has been creating her surreal pieces around fully functioning lighters for over 10 years. She was born into a world of art with her grandfather Ladislav Guderna a well known surrealist painter and a huge inspiration in her work. Along with her grandfather, dreams, animals, forensics and surrealism pay a big part of influence in her work. Christina has chronic vertigo from a past brain injury and uses art and painting a distraction and therapy for her anxiety and balance disorder. Below are some features and information about her work.
