KRISTINA ROLANDER is a Milwaukee-based installation artist, painter, and emerging stage designer. She creates immersive environments and large-scale backdrops, collaborating closely with musicians on custom visuals for their live performance. Past collaborations include backdrops for Shannon and the Clams (Oakland), Little Scream (Montreal), Siamese (Dallas), WebsterX (Milwaukee), and stage designs for The Fatty Acids (Milwaukee) and Whips (Milwaukee). Selected as a visual artist for the Eaux Claires 2017 Music Festival, Kristina had the recent pleasure of creating a stage design for The Creek upon which Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Aaron Dessner (The National), and Francis and the Lights all performed. Whatever her medium, the artistic mission remains the same -
to create site-specific work transforming ordinary space into something extraordinary, presenting an opportunity for meaningful experience. You can see her work at Company Brewing where she holds an informal artist residency, Cactus Club or follow her on Instagram to stay up-to-date on recent projects. For commissions or inquiries, email kristinarolander@gmail.com
