Pablo Cristi is an artist born and raised in Los Angeles. He was born to Chilean parents escaping the Pinochet regime,
Informed by the Los Angeles mural culture, Cristi’s complex paintings often intermix cultural signs and representations with painterly abstraction, connecting the politics of the canvas to the politics of the street.
He is an educator and community organizer, teaching and leading youths in art and mural projects throughout the West Coast.
Cristi received a prestigious ICAN Residency in Derry, Northern Ireland in 2011.
He was featured on KQED and written about in Juxtapoz, the Los Angeles Latino Heritage Month Cultural Guide/Catalog, and Art Practical.
