Christina Marie Fong

Christina Marie Fong (b. 1967) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2011. Known for her bold, graphic, and confident drawing style, Fong is influenced by fashion, pop culture, and mass media.

Fong’s artistic practice is embodies what she describes as “personality…the fabulous” seen through repeating themes like celebrities, purses, and jewelry in her artwork. Whether drawing large versions of dollar bills or building elaborately detailed paper sculptures of designer handbags, her work is extremely delicate and precise. Fong juxtaposes the familiar with fantasy, in which "Everything I draw or make is based on someone [or something] in a way… but then it changes and becomes part of my imagination." 

Fong’s work has been exhibited internationally. Fong was featured in prominent exhibitions including Bay Area Now 7 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA and West Coasts at Museum La Creation Franche in Begles, France in 2014, Outsider Artists at Oakland International Airport, Oakland, CA and Peaceable Kingdom: Animals, Real and Imagined at Bedford Gallery, Walnut Creek, CA in 2013, and Fabricators at Jack Fischer Gallery, San Francisco, CA in 2012.
