Art by KG
Kristina KG, also known as KGART510, is a 24 year old artist/illustrator and music enthusiast of Indonesian-Dutch descent based in Oakland, California. Born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, she moved to the Bay Area in 2008 and graduated from Berkeley High School in 2011.

Growing up with a musician mother and artist father, art came to her naturally as a child and quickly evolved into a form of self-therapy to help her cope with trauma. Shortly after high school, she began to consider art as a serious career and participated in several art classes in college, though she remains largely self-taught. As her personal style developed, she began to take requests for custom artwork from friends and family and eventually made the leap to start selling prints of her work at Oakland First Fridays; a popular arts and culture event held monthly in the heart of Downtown Oakland.

She currently works as merchandise manager at the UC Theatre, a prominent Bay Area music venue, and occasionally models as another form of self-expression. She hopes to cultivate a successful career in arts & music, her dream being to open a gallery/music venue as well as a record label focused on uplifting women of color, survivors of sexual abuse and other marginalized groups through the healing power of art and music.
