Cristian Andersson is a Wisconsin painter and performance artist. He received his formal education from Columbia College in Chicago and the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Cristian primarily creates abstract oil paintings based off contemporary classical compositions. The characteristic sounds of how a musician plays an instrument, a visualization of how these instruments are sonically placed in a concert hall, as well as thematic elements that composers work with all come into play in a finished painting.
