Conceptual Painter based in San Jose, CA


Krista Fay is a painter and digital artist exploring the relationships we collectively and individually form with technology and social media. She recontextualizes digital items in oil-paint and isolates screen elements on a tangible surface. Her paintings focus on the individual subject in relation to the mass subject and try to differentiate one from the other.

Her work has been shown nationally in group shows with her peers, and regionally in exhibits highlighting the collaboration of art and technology. She currently lives in San Jose and will be the artist in residence at Art Ark Gallery starting December 2019–February 2020.
