Kristin Llamas is a Nashville artist most well-known for her use of symbolic imagery, mirror-writing, and sewing together her canvases. She focuses on depicting social and current events in the most beautiful and peaceful way. Personal reflection and community betterment are the inspiration for each collection as the artist celebrates themes of hope, love, and beauty. From her Virtue Ladder series depicting physical rope ladders on large canvas to Aesop’s Fables moral themes and even her llama portraits representing the world as "One Herd", Llamas uses her art as a catalyst for reflection and inspiration.
Llamas has exhibited in galleries and museums around the country including the Nashville Parthenon Museum in Nashville, TN and Whistler Museum in Lowell, MA. She leads community-based street art installations and is the author of “¿Como te Llamas? Everyday Llamas You Might Know". Llamas’s contemporary paintings are riddled with symbolism and often feature her unique style of piecing canvas together and incorporating mirror-written text. Her work is represented by The Studio 208 Gallery in Nashville, TN and Park City Fine Art in Park City UT. Raised in NY, the artist made Nashville her home in 2007 with her husband, Alfonso and their three daughters. Here, the artist continues to develop new work, public art projects and commissions that benefit her efforts to inspire society through fine art.
