Welcome to Choyo's World
Cristina Del Hoyo is a Denver based artist who is originally from Spain. Her love for art and color started at an early age when she began exploring different artistic disciplines such as drawing, painting, and photography. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Granada, Spain, in 2009.
Cristina’s artwork is inspired by personal experiences and it is intended to be a bridge between the inside and the outside world. For her, art is a universal language is which through her emotional landscapes she can connect in a deep way to anyone in the world. The artist’s main focus is to create a point of contact between boarders and realities that touch for a second in her images, establishing the start of a dialog. She believes in the power of vulnerability and how powerful sharing your emotions can be on a personal level but also as a community and society. She believes in the therapeutic power of art and has shared what she has learned in almost 20 years of her artistic journey. She developed and delivered an art program called “Paint Your Life” for underprivileged children and teens in rural Guatemala in 2018 and 2019 based on this principle of the power of vulnerability and using art for personal exploration and growth.
The artist has exhibited in Barcelona, Granada, and Denver. During her time in Colorado, she has accomplished various artistic projects such as staging private houses and business, commissioning art pieces to private clients, art consultation, and coordination of two murals at Avanti f&b in Denver.
