CHRYSTOS

Born on November 7, 1946 in San Francisco, California, off reservation. She is a dyke, activist, writer, and artist. Her first art show at the Full Moon in San Francisco sold out in 1974. Thus, she hasn’t wanted to be in any further art shows, as losing her children to strangers was very traumatic. Only one of those pieces has been returned. She believes in art as prayer, a meditation on form and colour, which is sacred. Megwetch.
