About Chrissy

Chrissy Angliker was born in Zurich, Switzerland, and raised in Greifensee and Winterthur. Aged sixteen, after years of study under the Russian artist Juri Borodachev, she moved to the United States. There she studied Fine Art at the Walnut Hill School and eventually received a degree in Industrial Design from the Pratt Institute.

During her studies Angliker designed everything from furniture and lighting to displays and branding. After receiving numerous awards for her designs, in 2008 she shifted her focus to painting.

Angliker sees her paintings as made up of three elements, each representing chaos or [artistic] control. Control is represented by colour and marks, but the drips facilitate more truth than is possible under control—they allude to the chaos in each subject.
