Kristina Bell DiTullo is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Encinitas, CA. She grew up in New York State and has lived throughout the U.S. Kristina earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1996 and an MA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2000. Kristina’s work is driven by her knowledge of psychology and human behavior stemming from her background working as an art therapist. She uses a precise, controlled, repetitive visual language to examine themes such as trauma, relationships, resilience and psychological launguage. Her current projects include works on paper, installations and sculptural pieces created from ubiquitous cultural objects. Her work has been shown nationally in exhibitions at various locations including the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; the Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago, IL; the Silvermine Guild Art Center Gallery, New Canaan, CT; the New American Art Union, Portland, OR and the Berkeley Art Center, Berkeley, CA.
