BIO

Chrissy Angliker is a Brooklyn-based Swiss/American artist who regularly shows in both her native and adopted countries. She was born in Zurich and raised in Greifensee and Winterthur. Chrissy’s artistic inclinations emerged at an early age. Beginning in 1996 she was fortunate to study with the Russian artist Juri Borodatchev, who became her artistic mentor for several years. In 1999 at age 16, Chrissy moved to the US to study Fine Art at the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Mass. In 2002, Chrissy had her first solo show at Gallery Juri in Winterthur, Switzerland. Seeking to broaden her means of expression, she then pursued a degree in Industrial Design at the Pratt Institute in New York. After spending her post-graduate years working in the design field, Chrissy shifted her creative expression back to painting in 2008. Her art is focused on visually translating her perception of herself in relationship to the world. Chrissy’s work has been shown in Europe and the US, and has been featured in several international publications. She has been commissioned to collaborate with several companies, among them AOL, Burton and Wired Magazine. Her most recent solo show, “Bodies of Water,” was held at the Swiss Consulate in New York.
