Paul Cristina is an artist in the greater Charleston area. He was once weary and unsure about following his passion for art, but has now quit his tedious day job and made the bold decision to pursue his love for art full time. Now, Cristina has become an outspoken presence in the Charleston art scene. His art is being displayed at Beresford Studios from October 26th to November 25th as a part of the Charleston Arts Festival. The name of the show is "Down Into Folds." He has worked hard for these paintings that will be displayed, some taking him up to four months to create. Cristina's pain, sweat, and tears have truly been put into his art.
