Artists Statement

Christybomb's artistic creations draw inspiration from the happiness, innocence and youthful fantasies of her childhood, like Candyland, Hello Kitty and Willy Wonka. Her work is also influenced by over-the-top trends and looks of avant-garde fashion, cosplay and drag queens. The idea of making something out of nothing—with ingredients that are largely frivolous or even throwaway in nature—fascinates her no-end and influences her work. Christybomb's purpose in all this is to create circus-like mosaics that are textural, colorful, bright and bold—electric kaleidoscopes of layers, colors and materials—radiating heat, excitement and vitality.
