These 3 ink drawings were done in 2011, when I wanted to do something different from my usual paintings. It had been quite a while since I had drawn with pen and ink and I found tremendous pleasure in doing these three. Although they’re a bit different from my painted works, they still contain elements that are important to me: nature, the heart, flowers/roses and butterflies. I named them Love, Faith and Charity.
The original drawings, complete with frame, are for sale in my Etsy shop.
“Elles” presents the work of 12 female artists, with inspiration and influences generated from various places. This exhibition demonstrates how the individuality and identity of each of these artists are developed distinctly, based on different principles. The exhibition offers an opportunity for the public to create connections between the art works and to break stereotypes regarding feminine art.
From 23 September to the end of March 2016, selected works by Christina Oiticica are exhibited at the Consulate-General of Brazil in Geneva. This exhibition is the first of a series of exhibitions featuring Brazilian artists based in Suisse-Romande (the French-speaking part of Switzerland). All works are for sale and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Associação Raízes, dedicated to Brazilian language and culture.
Arte no Consulado, set up in cooperation with Espace_L is open to visitors from Monday-Friday from 09:00-13:00.

You’ll enjoy this mini-documentary about Christina and her “planting” artworks. The footage shows Christina planting and recovering her art in the Amazonian Rainforest, the pilgrim paths of the Camino de Santiago (Spain) and the Kumano Way (Japan) as well as in Assisi (Italy). After their time in the soil, which varies from 6-12 months, the recovered artworks are the perfect cooperation between the artist and Mother Nature.
