A solo exhibition of new works by Cristina BanBan


A Spoonful of Charcoal presents a new body of works which builds on Cristina BanBan’s ongoing talk series of daily life scenes. Her work speaks in a language of bold figures, textures and layered compositions, embodying a unique vocabulary of forms. BanBan’s painting stresses the subjectivity of personal experiences through an imagery that inevitably reveals an autobiographical story.

Opening Reception: Friday 5th May, 7-10pm, free entry
Daily Opening Hours: 6th-18th May, 9am-5pm daily

Cristina BanBan (Barcelona, 1987) lives and works in London. She obtained a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona and last year was awarded with the Hackney Wicked Art Prize. Cristina is a painter known for her colourful and figurative work depicting large human bodies and individual’s narratives. Through a complex process of addition and removal, her paintings have become a portrait of the society that she is involved in. Her subjects range from the real street scenes and situations she encounters to her doubts, fears and difficulties. BanBan’s paintings explore the struggles and victories of everyday life.
