Cristine Yunyk

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, Ontario

Cristine Yunyk is a painter and recent graduate of OCAD University (2018). Developed intuitively, Cristine’s work is informed by the history of abstract painting and explores paintings as objects and performers through improvised installations. Colour, humour, and digital references are recurring elements in her boisterous and sensitive works. Cristine is a founding member of the painting collective Painters Make Better Lovers and exhibited in Art Toronto 2018 with OCAD University.
