An artist that continues to push the boundaries of drawing, Christina Dy has been creating large-scale charcoal works that are part drawing, performance, and installation. She also focuses on the drawing surface itself--paper, and experiments with paper and the different ways of folding -- traditional, rigid, wet-- and combining it with drawing.

She also creates works in collaboration with other artists, combining drawing and craft with photography. 

Recently, she has turned her attention to performance, utilising her dance background. She is the founder and creative director of the aerial arts company Polecats Manila.
