On September the 19th, I was rolling around Birmingham City Centre searching for the fibreglass owls that make up The Big Hoot trail. One I found was number 11: Under the Glow of Moonlight by Kristina Butigan.
After gaining a first class Fine Art Degree at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Kristina Butigan has since launched her own practice, specialising in painterly depictions that bring to life the beauty of classical mythology, infused with contemporary fashion photography influences.
Fantastical scenes, exploring notions of beauty and stereotype, remain ambiguous – enticing the viewer to question their own perceptions of reality. Her work has been shown in galleries around the UK and Germany.
