07.01 Cristina Ban Ban.jpg

Portraits is the recent work of Spanish illustrator and painter Cristina BanBan. The representation of the female figure and the beauty of women are the main themes in her paintings, inspired by Japanese woodblock prints from the 18th and 19th century and by the art deco aesthetic and early fashion photography. 

Her experiments with line and colour bring out subtle differences in the feautures, expressions and backdrops of her serene subjects with their mask-like faces, which are common to her work. Portraits leads the viewer to consider the connection between autobiographical memories and melancholy and an idealized situation or dream
