“Building bridges, facilitating new perspectives. My passion is the urge to articulate the inexpressible in a graphic form. Where spontaneity means knowledge, where creative touching and shaping personifies my passion, that’s the point where visible tones and nuances become illustrative poetry.”
Sound of Swinging Symphony (Synaesthesia Series) Mixed digital media on canvas 70 x 100 cm
Intimately in concert with her own emotions, the graphic artist Christina Seibold perceives her role as an intermediary between haptic sensuousness and optical pleasure. Born in 1966 in Frankfurt am Main, Christina Seibold has been making digital art since the 90s. Married, a mother and a grandmother she spends most of her time with family and close friends. Seibold works freely and allows her graphics to assume their respective forms. She regards this method as an ideal means of portraying a visual poetry that lends so much soul to spaces. The density and abundance of expressive qualities are fascinating but her works make neither an excessive nor an adversely intrusive impression. Seibold has received recognition for her practice with awards including the Vielfalt Digitaler Kunst 2008, Honorable mention by DIGITALISM, 2nd Place in Digital Realities, January 2009 ARTROM, AVISKAR - Vang Gogh Award 2016, won Contest of the Month at MOCA, New York and has received the PININFARINA ADVANCEMENT PRIZE.

Seibold's shapes are intricate, fluid and the forms she created display unique plasticity and vibrant motion. A deep energy manifests within her transcendental landscapes where synesthetic forms seem balanced between the rigid and the elastic, the transient and the eternal.
With a very active career, Seibold has exhibited around the world in major art capitals including New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, London, Kalkutta, Salzburg, Vienna, Eindhoven, Berlin, Leipzig, Munich, Starnberg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Baden-Baden, Dortmund, Pforzheim, Allgäu, Siegen, Göppingen, Egelsbach, Rodgau, Northeim, Feldkirch, Lennestadt, Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Stuttgart, and much more. Her works belong to private and public collections. She is the co-founder of the ArSenu art group, the project Artists for Freedom e.V. and a member of Circle Foundation for the Arts, International Society of Artists (ISA), German Synesthesia Society e.V. and International Association of Synaesthetes, Artists, and Scientists (IASAS).
