About the Artist

Kristine Gargaritano (“KLEG”) is a Canadian artist based in Toronto, Canada, as well as in Dublin, Ireland. As a medical student and as a painter, she is passionate about continuously honing her craft and exploring different artistic styles.

Her process in creating art has always been centered around the experience of playing with colour and light.

For her, art is about exploration. Exploration of colour, exploration of the world, and of course, exploration of the viewer's eye within the world created on the canvas.
