Cris Franchevich, originally from Brazil, is a visual artist and architect living in the U.S. since 2000, with her husband and two daughters.
Cris explores the urban space with the eyes of an “andarilho”, a Portuguese word meaning a wanderer discovering new territory. Her art making expands past the traditional studio setting into the world, exposing her practice to situations and human interactions that contribute to visual conversations.
Gestural and intuitive, although planned, her drawings and paintings are highly influenced by her walk and conscientiously subjected to accidents and the unforeseen.
Cris describes her art as being her way of understanding life, a way of meditation, rather than merely a technique.
