A Romanian Influencer Responded To Claims That She Doesn’t Paint Her Own Works

June 19, 2019 / Posted by:

Meet Cristina Szeifert; artist, life coach, model, clinical psychologist, influencer, entrepreneur, and Tony Robbins acolyte. Emphasis on artist. It’s her PASSION! Not only is Cristina living her best life, the Romanian born renaissance woman has dedicated herself to helping others live theirs. Yet in this age of cynicism and rancor, Cristina’s manifold talents have recently come under scrutiny. According to BuzzFeed, a number of do-nothing talentless trolls have questioned Cristina’s artistic endeavors after noticing that many of the pictures she’s posted of herself in the act of creation looked suspiciously staged.

Well, if you think Cristina’s going to sit by and let a bunch of mouth-breathing philistines question her masterpieces (and believe me, masterpieces they are), you’ve not yet sufficiently met Cristina. She spoke with BuzzFeed personally and gave a perfectly reasonable explanation as to why her painting posts look staged. It’s because they are. You don’t become a multi-hyphenate international business woman/next Georgia O’Keefe by allowing yourself to be photographed sans fards and looking a mess!

One thing people picked up on in Cristina’s posts were her unchanging palette.

Sometimes it was noted that she didn’t have any paint on her brush or, as you can see in this picture, using a brush and palette when the finished painting was done using a pour method.

Cristina told BuzzFeed that “she’s created ‘almost every painting’ posted to her account” but that because “image is very important” she poses with finished works so she can have a chance to get her hair, makeup and outfit right.

“I have on my phone videos from almost every painting I did,” said Szeifert, responding directly to critics. “I am a model, artist, psychologist, and a public person so my image is very important — of course I don’t picture myself with dirty clothes.”

“Painting for me is a passion and I don’t do it for money. I [post] pictures because I enjoy it,” said Szeifert. “I can see that some people are jealous finding little things on my pictures that [they] are criticizing … This situation is ridiculous.”

Today she posted video evidence that she and she alone is responsible for creating masterworks such as this.

Cristina says that she uses the palette in her photos as “a symbol of art”. Much like the glasses she poses with on her personal webpage are a symbol of clinical psychology.

Just because she doesn’t wear glasses in real life doesn’t mean she’s not a licensed clinical psychologist. You see how it works, don’t you? She’s also not not a chef.

Neither is she not NOT a Maasai tribeswoman.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Cristina’s an artist of the highest caliber. Not only is she a master painter, she’s also a performance artist, as evidenced by this piece I call “Modesty”.

So rather than criticizing this woman for “faking it“, maybe we should be looking to her for inspiration. With enough time and money and the right filters and props, you too can be anything you want to be!
