#LiveInMyBlundstones

KRISTIN TEXEIRA

Painter, NYC

Our new profile series shines a light on the remarkable lives of the people who live in their Blundstones.

Massachusetts-born, Brooklyn-based artist Kristin Texeira paints to remember. Incorporating color, sketching and writing, her art combines the familiar and the abstract to evoke the fuzziness of memory. Her fascination with color and memories started as a child and has only grown stronger. “I make paintings so I have proof of moments in time. It's kind of the way people would take photographs as moments, ways to document, and that's what I do with color really,” she says. A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Kristin has exhibited and been awarded residencies in the U.S. and abroad.

“I'm into Blundstones because they’re comfortable and easy to throw on. I can wear them in the studio and not really worry about them, standing all day and being uncomfortable.”

“I make paintings so I have proof of moments in time. I try to retell stories from memory but also interview and talk to other people and provide proof for other people as well. It’s kind of the way people would take photographs as moments, ways to document, and that’s what I do with color...”

If you had to paint Blundstone as a brand what colors would you use and why?

“Blundstone as a brand... there would be lots of warm browns, indigoes, maybe a hot red in there and then maybe some oaky colors.”
