Christina Saj is a contemporary American artist whose work betrays a fascination with color and pattern while adapting forms assimilated from ancient traditions. Her early training included work in traditional, ancient methods of painting. She holds a BA in Painting from Sarah Lawrence, an MFA from Bard College and studied Byzantine Art History at Oxford University.
Today, she is always adapting and innovating her work to engage modern audiences in new ways with use of unusual materials and a focus on universal symbols with cross cultural references that give delight and spark our imaginations. Capturing the familiar, but imbuing it with a new and fresh approach make the work resonate for all generations.
Her work has been widely exhibited, including such venues as the Museum of Biblical Art, The National Cathedral, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC, Union Theological Seminary, The Ukrainian Museum in New York, The Museum of Cultural Heritage (Kiev, Ukraine), the American Embassy in Qatar, as well as at the White House. Her works reside in private and museum collections in the US and abroad. She maintains an active studio in New Jersey where she welcomes commissions.
