CRISTINA NATSUKO PAULOS IS AN AWARD-WINNING ARTIST AND ANIMATOR CURRENTLY LIVING AND WORKING IN LAS VEGAS.

HER FILMS HAVE SCREENED AT FESTIVALS IN NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, AND LOS ANGELES, AND SHE HAS COLLABORATED WITH NUMEROUS PUPPETEERS TO CREATE TOY THEATRE PUPPETRY PERFORMANCES.

“MY ARTWORK DERIVES FROM LIFE, JUXTAPOSED WITH THE CARTOON WORLD,” SAYS PAULOS. “MY ART IS CREATED FROM THE PHILOSOPHIES OF DRAWING. USING THESE PHILOSOPHIES, MY GOAL IS TO REVEAL THE MARKS AND CAPTURE THE ARTICLES WE OFTEN REMOVE FROM OURSELVES AND IN OUR PERSONAL IDENTITIES WHETHER IN CARTOON FORM OR FROM LIFE, OF THE PERCEPTION. THESE WOULD INCLUDING OUR FLAWS, OUR UNCOMFORTABLENESS AND OUR EXPLORATIONS OF OUR OWN VULNERABILITIES WHEN TRULY, COMPLETELY NAKED, APART FROM OUR BODIES AND FORM. 

“USING THE MATERIALS OF DRAWING LOOSE GRAPHITE, CHARCOAL, SUMI INKS, DYES, FOUND MATERIAL AND HANDMADE PAPERS, I HOPE TO CREATE WORK WHICH SHOW THE ORGANIC FOUNDATIONS OF HUMANNESS.”
