fanstastic painter of modern art
Khristina Manansala was born in Manila; The Philippines. Coming from a world renowned innovator of visual art, Manansala demonstrated a natural artistic ability since she was a child but never encouraged to pursue art professionally. For someone with such noticeable early talent it is surprising, that it's only in the last four years she seriously considered art as a means of living and moved to painting full-time. Khristina studied at the De La Salle University of the Philippines, Manila.
Since her return to her original passion, Manansala came a long way in the notoriously hard to crack art world. Initially, she established a studio in Mandaluyong City and became a regular member of the Art Association of the Philippines and Tuesday Group of Artists respectively. The said group would have weekly On-The-Spot painting sessions and monthly exhibitions; she now creates art in her studio in Las Pinas City, a place she grew up as a child fired with her passion to recreate images perceived by her mind. Most of her work focuses on religious subjects; reminiscent of her childhood as she runs through the hallways that are filled with the magnificent works of her forefather, like the Crucifixion and Madonna and Child.
Manansala’s work can be found in private art collections both in the Philippines and abroad, and has participated in numerous exhibitions nationwide.
