CHRISTY TITUS<br />

United States of America<br />

Paris-based American artist Christy Titus began<br />

forging her own artistic path upon graduating<br />

in Communications and focusing on her love<br />

of art after a year of humanitarian work.<br />

Christy developed and perfected her craft<br />

whilst completing further studies at Bowling<br />

Green State University and the Art Students<br />

League of Denver. Predominately working in<br />

the field of painting, she caught the attention<br />

of master painters Daniel Sprick and Quang Ho,<br />

who mentored her during her time in Denver.<br />

<strong>The</strong> artist has exhibited with NEXT Gallery,<br />

Tesoro Artisans Gallery and Core New<br />

Art Space, as well as injuried exhibitions<br />

throughout the United States. Most recently,<br />

she has exhibited at HEC Paris in Jouy-en-Josas,<br />

France. Christy is currently a resident artist at<br />

59 Rivoli Collectif d’artistes in downtown Paris.<br />

<strong>The</strong> works donated for the Acrylic Melody<br />

initiative were inspired by music that the<br />

artist listens to while painting in her studio.<br />

I tend to flip between soft music and<br />

upbeat depending on how I’m feeling<br />

that day. <strong>The</strong>se two panels are a<br />

product of listening to both. ‘Blue Like<br />

Jazz’ was painted while listening to an<br />

album by <strong>The</strong> Civil Wars, and ‘Back to<br />

Nature’ was painted by listening to a<br />

collection of popular music.<br />
