Kristy Kitsune is a multimedia artist & NFT creator, sculptor & toy designer. A first generation Greek-American born in NYC & raised semi-nomadically, Kristy attended 11 grade schools between 2 countries. Her exposure to different cultures & ways of living shaped her values profoundly.
Kristy’s foray into artistic endeavors was not a seamless trajectory. She worked in a variety of industries from video production to fashion before yielding to her artistic inclinations.
Her work is influenced by her experiences, by human interaction & by the many dualities that exist within us as three-dimensional beings. From the deeply problematic ways we treat each other, to the extreme love & beauty we are capable of expressing, she aims to show the seemingly contradictory elements that comprise us as a way of challenging preconceived notions & popular opinion. These themes run through her work & are expressed in an aesthetic influenced by pop culture, graphic novels, mythology & animation from different countries.
In 2019, Kristy launched the designer toy lifestyle brand, Fluff Riot, based on her original sculptures and unique aesthetic. She works on it with her husband and fellow artist, Taylor Hausriot. To learn more about Fluff Riot, please visit www.fluffriot.com or instagram.com/fluffriot.
