Christina Nicola’s paintings are a direct reflection of herself — a liberated, queer, Black femme. With the erotic and intimacy front and center on her canvases, whether they’re miniature or large, Christina’s work offers a lens into this moment in her life — a moment intentionally focused on reclamation & personal exploration.
In addition to honing in on her practice, she has also carved out spaces for Black and brown femme and non-binary artists to showcase their work with a series of exhibitions, the most recent being Sapphic Summer at Brian Leo Projects. Looking forward, the self-proclaimed “AfroRomantic Lyrical Abstractionist ” plans to publish a memoir in conversation with her paintings, debut her first solo museum exhibition, and continue to build the Sex With Me universe. Most recently she is included in Arrangements in Black at Phillips New York.
