KRISTINA ROLANDER is a Milwaukee-based installation artist, creating large-scale paintings and immersive environments, often collaborating with musicians on custom visuals for live performance. As a creative, she strives to create site-specific work that transforms ordinary space into something extraordinary. She refers to this practice as LoFi Magic, with the end goal to provide opportunity for momentary, transformative experience.
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 2017 Eaux Claires Music & Art 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.
