Christina Villamor is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work is heavily influenced by the culture of her hometown of Miami. Quinceańeras, Santeria, the Caribbean diaspora, and impending climatic disaster are all sources of inspiration, along with 90s alt-rock music videos, 30s Weimar Republic culture, 70s and 80s science books, Sassy Magazine, Patrick Nagel, and DJ Clue remixes.

Christina can hold her breath underwater for 1.00.46 minutes and competently wield a machete.

Her ideal astronaut ice cream combines the taste of Bingo crackers, her grandmother’s homemade guayaba marmalade, and Philly cream cheese. 

She died on the Oregon Trail of typhoid fever, many times, in 1848.
