Crystal Wagner is probably one of the most exciting artists alive today. Her artworks are bold explorations of textures, colors and forms.

I recently had the chance to talk to Wagner about her upcoming show in StolenSpace Gallery entitled “Bioforms and Blooms”. Check the preview.
"...when I was a kid, it was whatever I was watching on television. I grew up in the 80's on Transformers and GI Joe cartoons, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Star Wars. It was kind of a hey day for stories which evoked a very certain kind of childhood fantasy."
