Cristal Buemi is a Puerto Rican Canadian Latinx multimedia artist, who holds a BA from Ryerson University and an MA from Bau, Design College of Barcelona. While multidisciplinary by nature, (stop motion animation, video, photography, collage and digital design), her work pushes frame-by-frame boundaries by exploring the materiality and inherent beauty found in the minutia, through a mixed media lens. Both her collaborative and individual work have been exhibited worldwide including its inclusion in The New York City Independent Film Festival, Animac (Spain), Harbourfront Centre’s Pandemic Postcards Series and broadcasted on AMC.
Cristal’s passion for pedagogy and creative expression have enabled her involvement in the art education community with various organizations and schools such as TIFF, Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS), The Koffler Centre of the Arts, York/Sheridan Design and Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada. As a facilitator she has had the opportunity to work with participants of various ages and backgrounds by leading artistic workshops, talks, camps and courses to help advance their creative practices.
