Cristina Delago’s artistic career spans more than 20 years. Growing up in Italy surrounded by a family of woodcarvers and sculptors, art was a daily inspiration. After moving to Canada, she attended Ontario College of Art, graduating with honours in 1987. Shortly afterwards, Cristina started “Delago Art Studio” designing and making handcrafted tiles and architectural elements for residential and public places. She has worked often with some of Toronto’s most recognized architects and interior designers.
Simultaneously, Cristina has also taught the fine art of tile making, mosaics, and sculptural ceramics at the Royal Ontario Museum, Avenue Art School, Columbus Centre, and many public schools. Cristina has been working with Art for Children and Youth (VIBE Arts) on community arts projects and with Cercan Tile on commercial and residential projects. Cristina has travelled and studied in various countries, has participated in several exhibitions, and won awards and scholarships. Her work has been widely published in national and local magazines and newspapers,
